Dry socket: See the dentist or oral surgeon that did the extraction ASAP if you think you have a dry socket. This needs treatment to relieve your pain and promote healing of the extraction site.

Dry socket: Check back with your dentist or the surgeon who did the extraction to see if you have a dry socket or if there is another issue. A dry socket can be packed to reduce the pain.
