What is recovery like when a dog has teeth extracted?

Our beloved nine year old part Poodle part Shitzoo (sp?) will be getting his back molars extracted because of severe gingivitis and infection. The vet said anywhere from ten to twelve will be extracted.
What can we expect regarding recovery? Will he be in considerable pain for a long time?

He is in otherwise great health.
He was my sister's dog up until a year ago when she left her husband. I know that this could have been prevented had he been taken in for regular cleanings, however it's a mute point now. I just want all of us to be aware of what to expect by someone that's been through this.
