Wisdom teeth

I got my wisdom teeth out 4 days ago, then my stitches broke. Does this look infected? Or just a bad case of dry socket. I am in immense pain. The surgeon put surgical gauze in my socket and it worked for a day then seemed to come out.

Probably is a dry socket. Not much else would explain the pain. Sometimes the packing must be replaced every other day for 3 weeks. Sometimes it only takes a couple of packings. When the packing can be removed with no pain and little bleeding, that is a sign it is finally healing.

Older patients have less dynamic bone that heals more slowly.
