    I got 3 wisdom teeth extracted on Tuesday. Since Friday I’ve noticed a difference in the pain among all 3. One place (the bottom left) has a sharp pain that feels deep in the gums/socket. It’s a throbbing pain that is not “terrible” however I find it unbearable so I take tylenol and I’m fine. The pain is the same today. The other two sites feel fine.

    I don’t have bad breath or foul taste so I don’t know if that discards the possibility of a dry socket? I went to my doctor on Friday and he said everything looked fine but still it was too early to tell.

    Could this still be a dry socket? Could it be something else?

    Most likely it is not a dry socket. If it is, you may be in more pain and Tylenol will not help it. Minimize disturbance and irritation around the area. If you notice swelling, then get followup.
