Wisdom tooth dry socket?!
Question: Wisdom tooth dry socket?

As you extractions were only on Friday this is normal and expected. The pain normally peaks at 3-4 days afterward so this seems about right. Continue to take regular painkillers and rinse with saltwater to keep your mouth clean and the sockets free from food debris. If the pain gets under control but then starts again say on Wednesday then this is the sign of a dry socket. The painkillers will ease your headache also. Remember eat before taking the meds and eat soft foods.

Symptoms and timing are not that of dry socket, this white coat is not uncommon, may be tiny food remnants, just a warm saline mouth wash will fix this
