Get back in the game: Depending on the difficulty of the extractions your surgeon will give specific post operative instructions, but expect to be back to normal within 48-72 hours.

Take it easy: Ice packs to reduce swelling. Antiinflammatories for pain and swelling. Gauze to bite on to stop bleeding. Follow the instructions you will be given.
