In brief: Swelling

If you mean swelling after extraction .
I would say the swelling is different for each person but usually starts to diminish after the 3rd or 4th day. You can safely use some hot damp compresses (damp hot towels) to help relieve the swelling and discomfort. Also complete your medicine.

In brief: Hard to say

Everyone heals differently and each extraction is unique regarding the difficulty.
But it can range from 2 to 10 days.
