Hi, I recently got three wisdom teeth pulled on the 19th of this month. It is now the 24th, and I'm still in a lot of pain, and have a bad taste in my mouth, which is also causing bad breath. Does this sound like dry socket, or an infection? The teeth right next to the sockets hurt as well. Thank you.

  • If you have bad taste in mouth along with the bad breath then it looks like you have infected socket It can be the dry socket also.  You have to get it checked from your dentist. In either case the socket is cleaned and in case of dry socket dry socket paste dressing is given. Along with this you have to get the antibiotics also.
