  • No it is not normal. If you have got the extraction done about a week or 10 days before then by this time it should be healed and if you still have abscess then that means that there is some infection in the extraction socket or some nearby tooth is infected. So schedule an appointment with your dentist and get an xray done and find out the exact cause of the abscess. In the meanwhile keep doing warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day and maintain good oral hygiene.
