I had all four of my wisdom teeth extracted 9 days ago. It hurt and ached like normal. All of the pain has gone away except a new pain has replaced it but only in one area. On the tooth that had to be completely cut out there is a throbbing pain. It throbs but also feels like the pain when a tooth is really sensitive, except it is not on a tooth. It is in my jaw and the pain shoots through my whole lower jaw on that side of my face. Pain medicine does help the pain so I don't believe it is a dry socket.
