Could this be dry socket?

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: Melissaholds  (8 years ago)
Had all 4 wisdom teeth taken out 8 days ago.

3 of them are closing up rather well.

But, this particular one really doesn't look much different than the day it was extracted. Large open hole.

I am taking Motrin 800 for the pain. Which works well. Could it be that it is just taking a lot longer for this one to heal up? Or does it appear that it should have made more visible progress at this point in time?
