It could be dry socket, I would get the doctor to take a look at it.

You cant always see dry socket.  You would have a blood clot in the area that can dislodge, but not necessarily visible to you, which is when the "socket" becomes dry.

also, sometimes my patients complain about dry socket for a couple weeks after the actual event occurs.  Even when the extraction site looks healed visibly.  I would still get the doctor to look at it, at least to make sure there are no root spurs left in the area, just in case its not dry socket.
