Varies: Some extractions can be quite traumatic to the surrounding tissues, while others have virtually no pain at all. If you are having severe pain, call your dentist and be seen. One condition (dry socket) can become apparent 3-10 days after the procedure and be very painful. Some measures can be taken to relieve the pain. Call for a follow-up visit and let your dentist help.
