How long can it take for yellowish brown saliva to go away after tooth extraction? Only noticed in the morning, and clear through day. No pain/swell.

In brief: Few days

It will take 2 or 3 days for the drainage to subside after a tooth extraction.
The yellow-brown color is caused by hemoglobin in the blood, and emanates from the blood clot formed in the tooth socket.
