  • dry socket is done so that the paste gets absorbed in your teeth with time, and for the process you have got it , you should get another dry socket.It takes about 2 - 3 weeks for the dry socket to get completely healed.The dentist has the option to pack the socket with a number of medicaments which will burn the terminal nerve endings resulting in relief of the pain . This is short lived and the pain will return in a day or two necessitating a trip back to repack the socket until healing has occured.

  • in case you have a dry socket you have to get the dressing done again till the healing is there as in dry socket the pain is there because the blood clot which promotes healing after the extraction is dislodged. So the dressing is given basically to cover the exposed bone which otherwise should be covered with the clot. If the dressing comes out too soon then the dry socket pain can again start. for more info on dry socket you can visit the following
