I got all four of my wisdom teeth out 3 days ago, and I am worried about dry sockets. I can see a little hole where my left bottom tooth was. It's gross, i can actually see through it, i can see a bit of bone on the side. I thought it was a dry socket and called my dentist, but she said it is a normal occurance. Is this correct? I dont like having a hole in my mouth, and it doesnt seem normal to me. Any advice???
i had dry socket when i had my wisdom teeth pulled and it was extremely painful!!! i also had holes but they do go away and the holes have nothing to do with dry socket. you would be in a lot of pain! good luck and be patient, you will heal soon
The hole will heal from the bottom up, so it is normal, you will have a hole there until you are completely healed (about 2-3 weeks if i remember correctly) If you have dry socket you will know it, as excruciating pain goes along with it!
I had my wisdom teeth removed about 3 weeks ago. The top ones are ehaled fine,s mooth and everything. The bottom ones are not ..I have 2 holes where food gets stuck, etc. No pain.
About 3 days after the teeth weer removed, one of the teeth (bottom) started bleeding, was very sore, etc. But it healed again after 3-4 days. No pain now at all, just wodnering when the holes will heal?! I heard someone say 3 wees, but it's been about that for me.
