I had 2 wisdom teeth extracted last wednesday. There was a RC done on 2 teeth with caps fitted. The pain is unbearable for last 1 week. Also, I feel a bone from the extracted tooth base piercing my cheek like a pin. Please let me know if this is normal.

No this is not normal. Please visit the same dentist and report ur problem. There might be some sharp bony spicule which might have to be rounded off.

It doesnt look normal. Pain should come down after 1 week of extraction. Xray is required for proper diagnosis. Visit your dentist regarding this problem. Thank you.

It takes 6 months to heal that extracted site completely, but if u feel any bony spicule or sharp margin then go to the dentist & remove that part, ur pain automatically will gone
