You will be fine. You might have something stuck in the hole in which case it will need a clean out, or maybe a piece of bone chip is working its way out and has set up an infection, or maybe it's just bad luck. A course of antibiotics will sort you out :wink:

Try not to stress too much. It's not that uncommon to get an infection after extraction. Our mouths are full of bacteria.
