9 days ago I went to remove a molar hmm well I am not sure what number would it be but it is on top left next to the wisdom tooth. So first thing I mentioned in the title weird extraction is that the tooth was germination or fusion not sure how to call it but when the dentist pulled the planned tooth the wisdom tooth was attached to it soooo they both got extracted together at one pull since they are attached. So that was a shocker for me not expecting to go home with two hole or whatever. For few days it was sore but it wasn't really hurting, I followed all the directions for after car etc. 4 days after the extraction went to see the dentist she said everything looks fine. Soo now is day 9 and it started hurting, a very dull pain inside the hole. It wasn't hurting at all until now it is hurting more and more and every time I make a smacking sound to swallow spit it hurts so much. Did I get dry socket? Is hard to see what it looks like but when I look at it in the mirror with my little angled glass tool it lookes very dark inside but you can't really see it since my gum is kind of hiding most of the hole. The first hole look fine like there's a meaty thingy growing on top but wisdom hole which is hiding behind the gum looks dark can't tell really anything kinda looks hollow but I am not sure. The discomfort and pain was fine until today. I don't know if I disturbed something and it started hurting or dry socket or infection I dont know what to do I am scared is starting to hurt very bad help pleaseeeeeeee!
