    Had a front canine pulled two and a half days ago. Extraction site looks kind of funny. Is this a developing dry socket? Very minimal pain in that area. Any thoughts on this photo? IMG_1961.JPG

    Looks good. If you get a dry socket, it will occur 3-4 days post-op with really bad pain. You're almost past that point. It is rare to get dry sockets in upper extractions.
