A small surgical procedure is sometimes necessary to close the hole if the gum tissue grows together with the sinus tissue to form a tunnel

Following a tooth extraction 11 days ago you can feel what appears to be part of the tooth in the socket and every time you eat or drink the socket is extremely painful is this OK?

If you still feel what may be part of your tooth left in the socket, that is not good. I would suggest seeing your dentist, or oral surgeon about this as part of your tooth may have broken in the process of the extraction. If there is no partial tooth remaining, you may have what is called dry socket, which is extremely painful. This website will explain "dry socket" to you: http://www.dentalgentlecare.com/dry_socket.htm
