    No, it will hurt for another week.  Do daily rinses with salt water to reduce swelling and avoid hard foods and acidic foods.

    Do not poke at it with a Q-tip.  See your dentist if significant bleeding is still occurring, as you may have an infection.

    If your jaw was broken you would not be asking a question, you would know.  I mean, the fact that you just had teeth yanked from your skull could have something to do with the pain, right?

    Just do the rinses and include an antiseptic mouthwash if you think your breath smells bad, as there are more bacteria in your mouth right now than normal.
