Hello Sir, I am Dr.Irfan CHHERAWALA Dental Surgeon Yes you will recover soon. What is important is the area be regularly irrigated  with irrigating solutions by the dentist concerned , to decompress the effected nerve . Since it is 20 days post-extracting,  you must show ypur concerned dentist as soon as possible.
Next Steps
Visit the  dentist immediately where an OPG X-ray and CBCT scan will give a clear picture of the PROGNOSIS.
Health Tips
Avoid sleeping from side of  the operated side. Avoid unnecessary bending which can spread residual infection in the tissue spaces. Do not brush or use finger in the effected area.. Thank you. Please take care. Get  well soon.

When the wisdom tooth is in close proximity with the underlying nerve, there maybe numbness and tingling. It may need 3-6 months to recover completely.
