I am 49 years old female. I had my teeth extracted yesterday. I am still experiencing pain from it. I hurts even if I touch nearby teeth. Should I be worried?

Hello, after the extraction mild to moderate pain can be expected for few days therefore dentist usually prescribe pain killers and antibiotics. You can take it too. And even after a week if you feel pain go to a dentist may be your adjacent tooth might have a decay. Thanks.
