possible early signs of dry socket



Junior member

I had my back right molar pulled thursday morning. I woke up this morning with a foul taste in my mouth.... it seems i have that portion of dry socket but i do not have the pain at all.... should i be worried and wait for the pain to come before i call my dentist?? also is there something i can do to stop the early symptoms?
My vote is just to call your dentist just to make sure, because its always better to prevent pain than it is to wait and have to stop it.
