  • When the extraction socket is healig initially for one two days there is pain but it gradually starts decreasing and the red ness and the swelling also goes. It takes around one week for the socket to heal. If the pain persists and there is swelling and red ness even after one week that means the socket is infected. for more info on tooth extraction you can visit the following link on our website.....http://www.identalhub.com/article_do's-and-don'ts-after-tooth-extraction-153.aspx
