It is normal to feel some pain after the Tooth extraction. For 24 hours after having a tooth out, you should also expect some swelling and residual bleeding. However, if pain is severe or bleeding continues for more than 8 to 10 after the extraction, you should call your dentist. You should also call your dentist if you experience any of the following:

Signs of infection, including fever and chills
Nausea or vomiting
swelling or excessive discharge from the affected area
Cough, shortness of breath or chest pain
The initial healing period usually takes about one to two weeks. However, having a tooth (or teeth) missing can cause the remaining teeth to move, affecting your bite and making it difficult to chew. For that reason, your dentist may advise replacing the missing tooth or teeth with an implant, fixed bridge or denture.

If it was a relatively simple extraction, you should be pretty much out of pain in two or three days.

The soreness in the neck is atypical, and may be lymph node swelling. I would consult the treating dentist for a post-op exam. You may be dealing with a dry socket or post-op infection.

I have had an oral infection for over 5 years. At first, I just could not get my teeth clean. I had just had 5 years of Lyme disease treatment and was feeling great. Then my doctor, afraid of the AMA and government stopped my treatment. There is a clear puss that my ad infinitum trips to doctor (all kinds) dentists (all kinds) reaped ZERO help. It drove me crazy so I had 28 teeth with no cavities extracted. It has been over a month and the infection, plus 100s of polyps (in the last year, to year and a half)that developed in my GI tract, have only worsened with burning in my gut. No h. pylory. My only hope is looking forward to death, which I hope comes without too much pain and suffering.
