In some pain but it’s not excruciating at all just very uncomfortable. I’m an anxious person so I’m worried something is terrible wrong. Isn’t it too late to develop dry socket? I had pain for a couple of days afterwards but then it came back after I ate pizza, cookies and Reece’s cup. (Yeah I know I’m dumb and shouldn’t of eat them but I was freaking starving) I also grind my teeth at night so i dont know if that has anything to do with anything.

It seemed that the area is closing and healing nicely. It is not a dry socket or you will have excruciating pain. You don't appear to have swelling so all is well. Grinding and clenching can cause a lot of problems so talk to your dentist on options to manage that.

Thank you so much! Could I still get dry socket? It’s 13 days now since I had the surgery.
