In brief: Depends

If you have only recently had your extractions, it can be uncomfortable for a few days.
However, if it has been 4 days or more and you are not feeling relief, talk to the dentist to rule our a dry socket or infection.

In brief: Dry socket?

Throbbing usually implies dry socket.
Can occur between 3-7 days after extraction. See oral surgeon for prompt relief.
