Recovery period: after wisdom tooth extraction. The time needed for pain in the jaw and earache to disappear completely may be as long as 4-6 weeks. If concerned, see your surgeon for post-op exam.

No: Please return to the Oral Surgical Specialist or treating General Dentist who did your extraction. There has to be a reason for the pain.
