Is this dry socket?? I am day 5 since extraction and have had pain and discomfort for the past couple of days. The pain is a constant throbbing and almost pulsating sensation. It isn’t unbearable but very frustrating and it is helped with ibuprofen. I haven’t noticed any bad taste or bad odour.
My extraction took 15 minutes and the tooth didn’t want to come out and instead needed to be broken off bit by bit. I know it takes time to adjust to the sensation of a missing tooth but I’m really just wanting it to feel better already.
