I had two wisdom teeth removed a week ago, and I still have some pain in the lower left extraction site. If I touch near the extraction site with a finger and then smell my finger, there is definitely a bad smell. I have controlled this with using another finger to touch the same place on the opposite side of the mouth, and there is no smell. Do you think this could be a dry socket? Do I need to go back to the dentist or should I just stay home and wait for it to improve? I have attached a picture of the extraction site.
