  • Pain after dry socket is very acute and untolerable and you can see a hole at the site of wisdom tooth extraction. If you are having dull pain then it is normal after eight days of wisdom teeth extraction specially when you had 4 wisdom teeth extracted. The dry socket is because of dislodgement of the clot which causes healing ut from your description of pain it is quite unlikely that you have dry socket. You can wait for 3 to 4 days and if the pain decreases then everything is normal else visit your dentist There is comprehensive information available on dry socket, wisdom teeth extraction, etc. on www.identalhub.com.
