Ok so I got my tooth pulled yesterday, and it stopped bleeding this morning, but it still hurts pretty bad. Even after I take the hydrocodone they gave me I still have some discomfort.
A friend of mine freaked me out by saying I could possibly have a dry socket, which I know is when the blood clot falls out. When I touch the spot with my tongue I feel something squishy does that mean the blood clot is still there?
My dentist office is closed, I already tried calling.

When I had dry socket it hurt really bad, and nothing helped. But that was so long ago that I can't remember what it was like other than that. You should be fine waiting until tomorrow though to get in touch with the dentist. I know it hurts like crap though. I hope you feel better soon, dental work really sucks big time.
