  • you have not mentioned whether it was a normal extraction or the surgical extraction like bone cutting is done or not. If it was a normal extraction and the pain is there even after 6 days then the socket may be infected or you have a dry socket. For that you have to go to the dentist and find out the cause. If it is infected then some antibiotics are given and if the dry socket is there then the dressing is given. Mean while you can do warm saline rinses 2 to 3 times a day.
