It’s day three of tooth extraction and was just wanting to know if it’s healing properly. I wasn’t given any antibiotics or pain killers, they said they weren’t necessary. The pain today is a very dull throbbing like a 1 out of 10. It looks like there’s a tiny hole in it, but I mean I did just get a tooth pulled three days ago but I didn’t notice it yesterday. I also woke up with really bad breath. Might just be normal bad breath and I’m just overthinking it because I am DEATHLY afraid of dry socket. I have been googling everything and looking at all kinds of pictures and of course it’s not helping.

Good day
It looks like it is healing normally. Typical dry socket signs would be severe pain after about 3 to 5 days. As well as a bad taste or smell. If your pain level is only a 1 out of 10, I would be patient, and just follow the post op instructions given to you by your dentist.
