Can be: Jaw pain one week out is normal. If the pain hasnt increased and is slowly getting better than you should be fine. If you are having increased pain and possibly a foul smell or ordor from the extraction site you should se your doctor who removed them and have them take a look. You may possible have a dry socket or a piece of bone or tooth remaining or even food debris stuck in the site.
