Hello all. I had my tooth extracted close to three days ago and the area seems to be healing fine. I'm still quite sore but nothing unbearable. My question is why do other teeth in my mouth hurt? Actually its more like the gums around my teeth especially when I chew. I am careful not to chew on the side where the tooth was pulled. Is this normal? They hurt above the site and on the other side of my mouth as well as the site itself of course. Any help is appreciated.
