I had my wisdom teeth surgically removed 5 days ago. I now have throbbing pain in my last molar - NOT the extraction site - that responds to ice placed directly on the molar but persists as soon as cold is removed. It is also sensitive to pressure. Percocet takes the edge off. My question: could this be displaced pain from a dry socket? My oral surgeon warned me that I was at risk for this complication before the procedure. Or is it more likely something was nicked during surgery?
