    If you had a recommended oral surgeon to remove your wisdom teeth . Your recovery will be minimal and uneventful . 3 or 4  days of swelling . Pain killers  for the first few days . Follow the oral surgeons instructions with gargling……. food intake etc .
       Time of full recovery is directly proportional to the severity of the position of the wisdom teeth in the jaw or impaction . Even then, the person that took the wisdom teeth out is your most important hindsight decision . Let us refer you to the best and most experienced“ wisdom teeth doctor” so at the end of treatment you can :)))) smile .
