Recover?: What does recover mean to you? Do you have a desk job or are you a construction worker? A wisdom tooth can be a simple extraction or a very complicated procedure for a bony impaction. Expect a day to a week to be somewhat uncomfortable, swollen, etc. You should ask your own dentist (surgeon) as he\she knows you and your specific situation best.

Depends: Depends on degree of difficulty, number of teeth, age. It may take 7-10 days for full recovery, absent any complications. For best results, have procedure done by board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon.
