In brief: That depends

If we are talking about the local anesthetic administered to remove the tooth, then 2-4 hours.
Sometimes difficult wisdom tooth extractions can lead to numbness lasting several days to weeks due to trauma to the nerves. In rare cases this can be permanent. You should talk to your oral surgeon about your particular case so they can give you better guidance.
