Hello, I just had 4 teeth out yesterday morning, 3 of which were my remaining wisdom teeth. I would like to know if I can get an opinion on whether my sites are healing correctly or if I should call my surgeon back tomorrow and get advice on what to do next if they look like they are healing poorly. I'm pretty anxious about this as I've been staying on top of pain meds and salt water rinsing. If any dentist can help me, I'd be very grateful.

Cordially,
Mageris

If you have a dry socket there is no mistaking it. You'll be in a lot of pain. In the absence of pain, it's fine. Looks OK in those photos.
