Possibly: Swelling after a surgical procedure is normal. It usually is at its peak two days following a procedure. If there is extensive bone removal when extracting the wisdom teeth, there is usually more swelling. There are cases however, where minimal to no swelling occurs if the teeth are erupted and no bone removal is required. This varies from person to person also.
