| | Dry socket
I had my bottom left wisdom tooth and the one in front of it taken out Thursday (13th). I developed dry socket on Sat. The pain is the worst I have ever had, and I am going on two nights with zero sleep. The dentist packed it with medicated gauze Sunday, but the relief was short-lived. I also have really bad swelling around the affected area. Is this common with a dry socket? How long can I expect to be in pain? I was given hydrocodone 5/500, and it doesn't touch the pain. If anyone else has gone through this, did they give you any antibiotic? Thanks for your time, and I think its wonderful how everyone on this board supports one another.
