How Long after a Tooth Extraction Is There Swelling?

Facial swelling after tooth extraction can last up to 1 week depending on the tooth that is extracted. The swelling that results from the extraction of wisdom tooth with surgery will take longer. To relieve swelling, ice packs on the cheek of the affected area for 15 minutes on and off should provide some relief.
