I had a top back tooth extracted on the may 12th
on the 14th experienced alot more pain, went to my dentist and was told I had dry socket and was put on antibiotics, today is day 5 and pain is gone, does that mean it is healing or should I expect more pain to creep up on me from the dry socket?
your input will be appreciated
thank you for your quick response
this morning i notice spots of white in the socket with just a little pain is this also part of the normal healing process or could it be infection (I am on antibiotics x4 days)
