It depends on a number of factors. The main one being if there was an infection present & how bad the infection was, that can lengthen the time you experience discomfort.

If there was no or only residual infection after antibiotics, In terms of healing time, after 3/4 days the discomfort should ease, 12 weeks you should be expecting the socket to have healed adequately.

It took me about a week I think. Then it slowly got better. 4 days I was still in rough shape. It healed fine. Hope that helps :)
