1 Root Removed on Abscessed Tooth

Feb 2, 2020
Hello! I had one roots removed Friday in order to save an abscessed tooth. We planned on going back in and making the tooth stronger before crowning it (dont ask me the details I'm lost on the procedure lol). I noticed today that it APPEARS that the area has lost its blood clot (tooth #3), is this a dry socket? How long after a blood clot falling out do you have symptoms?
My dentist is out of town and won't be back for over a week and tomorrow is a Sunday.
I don't smoke, avoiding hard foods, didn't use a straw BUT I was spitting the blood out after the procedure because I wasn't informed it could be an issue... Im also on an antibiotic.
Any information would be great!
