Welcome to HCM
I would like to tell you that even after extraction if you experience pain then its not a good sign.
It indicates that either some remaining root is there or some bony spicule is present.
To get proper diagnosis get an IOPAR done of that area & consult your dentist regarding that.
Do warm saline rinses twice a day.Don't worry.
