    No, your face will be swollen and your sockets might still be bleeding.  You will find it difficult to talk.

    Wait until the next day.

    Depends on your work, if you don't have to speak such as a public facing role sure, if you have to speak to people maybe not.

    This is a question for the dentist or oral surgeon.

    I would have been fine returning to my desk job. My roommate was in really rough shape, in pretty bad pain, for two or three days afterward, and looked pretty bad, too. She would not have been fine trying to work.

    So if you have the option to schedule the time off, do it. You can't know what kind of shape you'll be in.
