Cold sensitivity after tooth extraction ok?

In brief: Another tooth

A tooth socket after extraction can be painful but not cold sensetive.
If you are having cold sensitivity it has to be another tooth.

Very possibly the healing is allowing recession to the adjacent tooth and the sensitivity is coming from the newly exposed root surface on that adjacent tooth.

In brief: Not uncommon

Following the extraction of a tooth, some patients will experience some sensitivity to hot and cold substances with teeth adjacent to the extracted tooth.
In most instances the sensitivity will decrease with time.
