It depends on how traumatic an extraction it is.  Are you taking any pain medications?

There can be pain depending upon the severity of the extraction process. The dentist must have given you some medication to relieve the pain. Are taking those. If there is no gradual reduction of pain after 24 hrs please visit the dentist again. It should ideally reduce gradually.
