One of my wisdom teeth was pulled out about two weeks ago. Unfortunately after two days, I developed a dry socket. The pain was terrible. My dentist put a medicated dressing on it and the pain went down. After four days, he took the dressing out and he left it open to heal. After a few hours, I started to feel the pain again. I called my dentist and he said this is normal and the pain will subside day by day. However until today I still feel the pain. I rinsed it with salt water to keep it moist and I used heating pad but it did not get any better. Is this normal or is this a sign that the socket got dry again? How long does the pain last after a dry socket treatment?
Please post your experiences. Thanks a lot!
