I was checking my gums earlier because I am still feeling some slight pain and I notice that I can see some of my jaw bone. I am not having serious pain, just a dull, annoying sort of pain after I eat or drink something. I do notice that after I do a warm, salt water flush the pain goes away. I don't have another appointment until March 4th, but I think I may go in early if the gums don't start to cover that area soon.
I was wondering could I have or is there a chance that I might get dry-socket? Does anyone here have experience with that? Or do I need to just relax and let it heal? (It's been 8/9 days) I have been searching and reading up on dry-socket and people who have it seem to be in extreme pain and that isn't me, so I think I am just being paranoid. The whole thing is kind of annoying. I mean, I had four wisdom teeth removed and it wasn't like this. I think I will give it another week and if it isn't better, I will go in and have it checked out or something.
