I think I might have a dry socket?

Can some one help me please. I'm in a lot of pain and very uncomfortable.. Is this a dry socket? I had my back tooth taken out on Tuesday..

Hi Toni, You should be seen by a dentist. Follow up care should be included with your extraction fee. It sounds like it could be a dry socket especially if your pain has increased since the extraction. You should call for an eval appointment ASAP.

Hope you feel better soon
