when after wisdom teeth removed will the gum grow back?

Not a problem: The healing takes place from the inside out. The gum will heal after the inside allows it to do so – this usually takes 1-2 months. This is not a problem and you will probably not notice it after the 1st week.

Yes: Yes, should grow back normally. Make sure your wisdom teeth are removed by an oral surgeon.

One-two weeks: Your post-operative healing time will vary, usually ranging from one-two weeks. If concerned, see your surgeon for post-op evaluation.
