Hello, today is day 3 of my wisdom tooth removal recovery I had both of my lowers removed. and the pain has nearly almost went away on its own but on my left side I feel a slight pain and I’m not sure whether or not it looks like dry socket and was wondering if I could have some opinions. The first picture is my left side and the second picture is my right side.
thank you! Sorry for the gross pics

Dry sockets are defined not by the appearance, but by deep and unrelenting pain, a foul taste, and halitosis. By tomorrow afternoon, if you';re still going tolerably, then you will be past the risk time for dry sockets.
