Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure.It takes time to heal.So get it checked when you go for suture removal.There should not be any other complication like dry socket which intensifies the pain.So it needs dressing.The healing time is at least 15-20 days.

Hi.. If it's a surgical extraction then it usually takes seven days. But pain also can be brought down by giving IV injection. Ask your dentist more about it. Regards

Usually it will b there for 5-10days depending on how difficult the extraction was.pain only when chewing may be because of the muscle spasm due to the injection.
