Tooth #18 was extracted in my Palm Harbor dentist office on July 31, 2012. As is typical with dry socket complications, the patient was relatively comfortable for two days but began to experience pain 3 days later on August 1, 1012. The patient was seen in my Tampa Bay area dentist office on August 7, 2012. This photograph was taken on 7 August 2012, the patient was pain free today – this is not typical dry socket. The site appears to be healing normally. If the patient experiences pain once again the dry socket will be irrigated and a medication packed into the site.
