Day or two: It depends on how difficult the extraction was, if there is an infection and how your system eats and handles pain. But generally about a day or two. You should be able to return to work quickly, the same or following day. You will be prescribed pain medication and an antibiotic if needed. Follow the instructions to make your recovery as easy as possible.

Varies: The level and duration of pain following extraction of teeth may depend on the level of difficulty of the procedure, type of anesthesia provided, experience and technique of your dentist. The unknown variable is your perception and response to pain, as everyone has a different threshold for pain and/or discomfort.
