I got four wisdom teeth removed and was treated for dry socket a week after on my top right hand side of my mouth. Five days after the dry socket treatment the dentist removed the medicated gaws and reported that a blood clot had not formed. What now?

In brief: Dry Socket

Dry socket occurred because the clot that formed was dislodged, leaving exposed bone.
The medication and gauze was placed to help the area heal and reduce the pain. No new clot forms. Gauze is changed periodically until the gingiva closes and/or the pain subsides.
