Yes, : Yes, it is normal. Doesn't happen all the time, but unfortunately part of extracting teeth. It should heal without a problem. The pain could also be coming just from the extraction since it was difficult... Don't blame the piece of bone. Your dentist was very forthcoming in explaining to you the problems he had with the extraction. It's only been a day. Give it some time, and i'm sure it will calm down. Sometimes, i advise my patients to take an extra tylenol (acetaminophen) two hours after the lortab. That extra bit of antiinflammatory and pain reliever does the trick. Ask you dentist what he thinks.
