On average it takes 7-14 days for dental pain to completely subside and for the incisions to heal. You had a lot of work done so it may take a little longer than 7 days. How unbearable is the pain? Is it throbbing? Implants go into the bone and it takes longer for that to heal. Did you tell your dentist that your lip is still numb after 7 days? they may have effected a nerve doing local anesthesia.
