I had 2 of my teeth pulled six days ago. Molars, both lower on opposite sides of my mouth. I have no pain, but one socket still looks hollow and unhealed. I've followed my post op instructions to a T, and tonight there was just a couple trickles of blood. Not much. With that said, it HAS been six days going on 7 and most people say I am out of the woods for dry socket. I am going to go see my dentist in a couple of days but I was just wondering if I really am out of the woods for that to occur or if I should perhaps just stop in at his office tomorrow morning? Is this still something I can develop six/seven days later?View Thread
