Xray taken by your dentist.

In brief: Soreness

Probably soreness from the tooth extraction.
Taking a tooth out causes some trauma to the area. I suspect that all of this will clear up completely in a couple of weeks. If it does not feel somewhat better after one week you may want to check with the dentist that removed your tooth.
