In brief: Depends

Each individual perceives and handles pain differently.
There is obviously some level of discomfort with wisdom teeth surgery. Some patients report an uneventful postoperative recovery and others may experience significant discomfort. Factors affecting this may include the level of difficulty in removing the teeth, type of anesthesia used, and pain medication prescribed.

In brief: Mild to extreme pain

Depending on the procedure performed postoperative pain can be mild to intense.
It varies case to case. Managing the pain with certain type of analgesics can avoid intense pain. Important to follow your doctors postoperative instruction.
