I just had my lower two impacted wisdom teeth removed and I'm 32 years old !! I would expect at least 7-10 days of swelling and soreness and mild bleeding to occur the first 24-48 hours after surgery. If you take care of the extraction sites and follow the dentists post-op instructions, the healing time is quicker, or at least it goes smoother and you have a smaller chance of infection.

Every one's mouth is different and so is the nauture of the procedure. A more difficult extraction will require a longer recovery period.

All in all, it's going to be sore, it's going to be uncomfortable, the ears and cheeks might hurt a bit, and overall allow at least a week to work through all the soreness and swelling that is involved with any surgery.

yes, you can lose your molars just like any other tooth. You want to lose your baby molars, but not the adult teeth.

All children loose 20 primary or baby teeth and other people need molars pulled because their mouths don't have enough space.

No, some can be pulled normally like all the other teeth. Not everyone has to have their wisdom teeth removed. They only have to be pulled or surgically cut out if there isn't room for them to grow in, or if there is some other problem with them. But most people keep their wisdom teeth with no problems. I still have all my wisdom teeth, but I had several other molars pulled before the wisdom teeth appeared due to decay and abscesses. That made plenty of room for them.

As mankind has evolved over the millenniums, the human jaw has grown smaller. The third molars (wisdom teeth) are remnants of a time when the jaw was much larger. Consequently, there often is not enough room for the wisdom teeth to properly erupt, and they become impacted.

The most common causes are related to third molars (wisdom teeth) which may be erupting, causing trauma to the gingiva (soft tissue), or developing, but impacted, putting pressure on the bone or other teeth. If one is impacted, but exposed to the mouth, infection of the surrounding gingiva (pericoronitis) is common, and can become a very serious problem. Caries (decay) or periodontitis (gum disease) commonly cause pain around the other molars (back teeth). There are numerous less common causes: cysts, tumors, soft tissue or bone diseases, etc. See your dentist.
