I<< answered your post on the other thread yesterday. Here is a copy of it.>>
It is not uncommon for the adjacent teeth next to the one that was extracted to feel sore or achey for a couple of weeks after the tooth was extracted. HOWEVER, your description of the hole and the pain sounds like you may have a dry socket. This condition too could cause the adjacent teeth to hurt or feel sore.
A dry socket needs intervention from your dentist. I would suggest that you make an appointment as soon as possible for him to check it out to determine if it needs to be treated.
A note about rinsing....... the only thing you should be rinsing with is warm salt water, NOTHING ELSE. Mouthwashes contain alcohol and this will cause a dry socket to occur. Herbal rinses will irritate the wound and can cause a delay in healing resulting in a dry socket as well.
I hope this information is helpful to you..... please let us know how you are doing.
