So I have a couple questions that maybe one of you can help me with at least till Monday because the dentist office is closed, lol!
So I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled Friday, no cutting they were all already out! So that night of course it hurt pretty good, I applied ice, took Ibuprofen and ate only ice cream and bananas and drank cold liquids. The next day they barely hurt, continued the ibuprofen and ate all soft foods (eggs, macaroni, applesauce, etc) then that night I ate like normal again, hot foods, a little harder things but still no straw and no spitting while brushing teeth!
So this morning I wake up and it's almost like me mouth hurts more today than yesterday, not quite like the first day, and not unbearable pain but pain! It's also sore and swollen! Now my dentist did say that if I was going to swell it would do so and few days after procedure! Does this all sound normal? Does it sound like a dry socket? How would I know if I had a dry sockets
