    Last Thursday I had three wisdom teeth removed. I looked in my mouth and saw this.
    Is this dry socket? There isn’t really any pain. Just sore from Novacaine shots.

    Dry socket is judged from the symptoms and timing. If it occurs, it will be 3-4 days post-op, with great pain, bad taste, and foul breath. You're past it now.
