Like a good workout!: You can expect a general mild soreness all depending on how deficit the extraction was. Sometime there is no pain except a slight soreness and that can vary from patient to patient. But if you are having usually severe pain or discomfort call you dentist and keep him or her posted on your progress. Hope you have a painless one.

Mild to Moderate: If the extraction was a fairly routine extraction then you may have mild to moderate pain for 3-5 days.
