Yes it is normal that you have space after extraction. If it had been any other tooth then this space would be replaced with a bridge/implant. But in this case the tooth extracted is third molar/wisdom teeth and it is of no use in oral cavity.
Wisdom teeth is the extra teeth that fails to erupt in its normal position in the given period of time....
it is not used for eating and speaking purpose....
if it cause any problems the ideal method is removal of teeth only
The Wisdom tooth is a vestigeal part of your body. Basically it is of no use, neither helps you in chewing nor for any cosmetic purpose.
It has been known to cause multiple issues , and removal is a permanent, perfect solution!
So as it was anyways of no use, the wisdom tooth never has to be replaced, and the space fills up and the gums around will heal to not trouble you ever in your life!
Wish you Wisdom and Good Health,

Yes. It's perfectly fine to have space, as wisdom tooth is not used during mastication(chewing of food). The socket area will heal within 7 days and there is no need for any kind of tooth replacement in the space that is available.
