  • It is o.k.if the extraction socket is sore after 5 days as it takes around 7 to 10 days for the pain to go. You may be feeling the bone part but it is difficlt to comment with out seeing the case so it is better if you visit the dentist. For more info on what all should be avoided after the extraction you can visit the following link on our website.....'s-and-don'ts-after-tooth-extraction-153.aspx's-and-don'ts-after-tooth-extraction-153.aspx
