As mentioned above on this page, your case might be an example where performing a surgical extraction might have resulted in creating less procedure trauma than performing it conventionally (the extraction procedure steps described on this page). But that is hindsight now.

With any extraction procedure, postoperative pain is common and not unexpected when it occurs. We discuss the issue of controlling postoperative pain during the first 24 hours here.

Rather than a website, seeking attention from your dentist makes the better plan. Dentists expect that emergencies will happen, especially with difficult extractions, and expect to hear from their patients if their assistance is needed. That is their obligation to you as your treatment provider.
