In brief: Pericoronitis

It will last until it goes away or is successfully treated.
There is no specific range of time. It's like asking, if i get a splinter in my skin, how long will the soreness and discomfort last? The splinter needs to be removed and the body time to heal. Similarly, salt water rinses, antibiotics, debridement of area, removal of gum flap or tooth etc. Might be indicated based upon cause.
