About a 1 week for primary healing for complete it depends upon years immunity, average it takes 3-4 weeks.
Minimum 3 days to maximum 7 days.

Hello, usually it takes a week to a max of 10 days for complete recovery. Thanks.
You should be fine within a week's time. Keep taking the medicines that your doctor has prescribed.
It depends on the type of case. Can vary from 10 mins to 2 hrs. If there is a lot of bone removal to be done then it may take some time. It is case dependent.
1 week.
