  • After 2 days of extraction it is normal to feel pain and sensitivity in the adjacent tooth. It is because of the inflammation in the extraction socket. So you should not worry but follow all the instructions given by your dentist and take all the meds on time.. Do warm saline rinses 2 to 3 times a day and maintain good oral hygeine. If the problem continues even after week of extraction then consult your dentist. for more info on tooth extraction you can visit the following link.......http://www.identalhub.com/dental-pain-after-tooth-extraction-890.aspx
