dry socket with bone graph

I had my wisdom tooth on the bottom and number 18 ( the tooth next to it) removed and had bone grafting. its the 4th day and my clot looks to be dissolving to were I can see a dark open space slowly getting larger.  I seen my dentist today she said it was impossible to get a dry socket with a bone graph but from what I've heard online makes me feel she is incorrect and I'm worried sick I might be developing one.

Hello,
Extraction and bone graft are usually not done together. The graft can act as a medium where bacteria can grow.  The socket needs to heal before the graft. It could possibly be a dry socket.In a dry socket there is alveolar osteitis and there is severe pain since the underlying bone and nerves are exposed. See your dentist and get it checked. A dental examination will confirm the exact cause of your symptoms. I hope it helps.
Best wishes and regards!
