Depends on condition: you can expect to have some swelling and discomfort that is managed by antibiotics and pain meds. Pre-med with antibiotics is recommended.

Oral surgeon: Complex question. Many variables. Best advice is to see an oral surgeon for comprehensive history/exam/xrays/video/recommendations.
