Hi,

I had my L6 molar removed on Wednesday afternoon. The pain does not seem to be reducing and my jaw/lower cheek is still sore to touch.
I am pregnant and I am only able to take paracetamol. I wasn't sure as I was on day 4 now if I have dry socket or is pain (not reducing) on day 4 completely normal?

I will try to attach a photo.

Good day

On the 4th day, the pain should be reducing. The photo is unclear. I would follow-up with my treating dentist for a possible dry socket.
