The pain you are experiencing post extraction of tooth may be due to formation of dry socket at the site of extraction socket.
Traumatic extraction also can lead into such pain.
I would advice you to get the socket irrigated with betadine and ZOE pack has to be applied.
Complete course of amoxycillin along with analgesics has to be administered.
Visit your dentist if pain persists.
