Dentist 's  Response
The pain post extraction may be due to development of dry socket at the site of extraction.
I would advice you to avoid anxiety and stress.
Maintain oral care.
Gargle frequently using warm saline or betadine.
Rinse your mouth after every meals.
Socket has to be cleaned using gauze soaked in povidine iodine solution.
Take complete course of antibiotics-analgesics.
Hope this helps.
