    6-8 weeks.:eek:

    Nah, typically 24-36 hrs before the swelling peaks, and assuming no complication you should be well on the mend in 3-5 days.

    In addition do warm salt water rinses; this will help take away the soreness.

    DO NOT Smoke or drink anything through a straw or you will get a dry socket. This is a horribly painful thing which will hamper and extend the healing process.

    I vaguely remember having two of them extracted. I was awake for the procedure and due to the rooting they had to cut the danged things in pieces and then remove. I bled rather heavily afterwards--the dental surgeon thought I might have a vitamin K deficiancy, but I was merely booze soaked. The pain subsided rather quickly, and the healing began. I still have my other two wisdom teeth.
