You probably think having a tooth pulled is not a particularly enjoyable experience. And you no doubt expect to have some discomfort afterward.

But that's OK, you say. You can endure it when you need to.


But if the pain becomes intense and perhaps even worsen after a few days, it may be a symptom of a condition called dry socket, or alveolar osteitis.
