    Hello guys, Sooo, I had my 2nd upper premolar extracted last Thursday (today is day 5) and the hole seems to be getting larger by the day!

    I am just wondering is this is healing as it should or if I should be concerned. My next question is, on which day can I truly stop worrying about dry socket? I have had no increase in pain yet and so I doubt I have one atm and its been over 120 hours since the extraction.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Looks like normal healing. You are past the danger time for a dry socket. Dry sockets in upper teeth are rare.
