Hi! I got my wisdom teeth extracted 2 days ago. This is the 3rd day and I noticed that the dark blood clot that I had yesterday is no longer there. I'm feeling significantly more pain than yesterday and I'm wondering if I got dry socket. The first picture is taken today and the second one was taken yesterday. Please let me know, thanks!!

Dry socket is diagnosed primarily from the severe pain that accompanies it, usually 3-4 days post-op. Also bad taste and horrid smell. Photos don't mean anything.
