Pain next to extracted tooth

Hi,

Had my upper and lower wisdom tooth on the right removed last week.

On the lower side no problem.

On the upper side the stitches are bothering me a little and it still hurts but not so much that I need to take painkillers.

What I am wondering about: the molar next to the one that was pulled seems to be hurting a little bit. When I bite down really hard (teeth together) on purpose it feels painfull on that one.

Is that normal or do I need to see my dentist? I don't want to go there for every little thing when it's perfectly normal.

Hello
After a tooth extraction the hall area can be sensitive. I would wait until the extracted sight is completely heeled and than see how the neighbour tooth is doing.

Thanks for your quick reply.

I will wait, but what is the 'hall area" ?
