I had my lower back tooth pulled out three days back. It took a lot of effort to pull it out, as it was not loose. I have a little pain in that area and in my jaw, and I am terrified that I have or I am getting a dry socket. I am a smoker, and I waited for 24 hours before I smoked after the extraction. I also slightly rinsed my mouth with salt water after I smoked. I have been taking 600 mg of Ibuprofen, which I bought after a neck injury, and it seems to help with this pain also. Would I know if I have dry socket? Would the pain be unbearable?
