Post op pain: Pain is relative; some people feel more pain than others. Have no fear the surgeon or dentist should give you something for the pain. The best thing you can do after the extraction is rest and recover. Don't smoke for at least 36-48 hours. Avoid rinsing or spitting or drinking sodas. Avoid hard physical activity. It will ok, any questions or problems contact the dentist. Best of luck to you.
