In brief: See the doctor

A deep throbbing pain that is not relieved by oral pain medications is often a sign of dry socket.
Dry sockets are not infections, but the doctor can put a medicated dressing in the socket to help the pain.

In brief: Pain relief

Stay on regular dose of rx meds, use icepack to help dull the pain.
If it has been more than 2-3 days since the extractions you should call your providers office because you may have post op infection or dry socket.
