What is the normal recovery time for alveoplasty?

Varies. Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, blood sugar control, the exact type of procedure, and post-operative and follow up care. Discuss it with your surgeon and get their opinion as to what they feel is a reasonable recovery time for you.
Expect soreness. For 7-10 days. Your surgeon should supply medications to help and keep your post surgical morbidity at a minimum. Good luck.
