how long does tooth extraction pain last?

Few days: most of the time the pain should not be noticeable with proper medication ( pain killers and antibiotics) and dental care, complicated surgical procedures requiring opening of the gums and cutting bone may take a little longer, a week or two, and may need stronger medications. Your dentist should be able to give you a better idea depending on you particular case.
