Hi Dr, I had my 2nd molar pulled three days ago and an implant post put in. My recovery so far seems pretty predictable, however last night I developed an earach and today it persists off and on. I am due to leave the country for none days in 48hours and am absolutely freaked out about the chance of dry socket as I will most probably not be able to get dental care where I am going. I really didnt want to end up having this procedure done so close to leaving however my dentist seemed to think it would be fine. Is this earache normal or a sign of more dry socket. Any advice?
