I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed on Monday the 23rd so it has been over a week. I am a very paranoid person and I am worries about dry sockets. I have very little pain and in fact today didn't need any pain killers, but after I rinse I do get a little pain on 1 side that throbs and radiates up my face a little but it is bearable and noramlly disappears in an hour. I did have a bad taste in my mouth and bad breath about a week ago and now it is almost totally gone. Thank you so much for helping me out!
