i had my top back molar removed last mon, and although my partner says it looks fine and appears to be healing well, i am in so much pain still! the tooth next to it hurts as well as my gum is this normal after 6 days?
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.
