Typically dry socket will happen within 3-5 days after having a tooth removed. The main symptoms are extreme pain the the area right where the tooth was removed, bleeding of the gums where the tooth was removed, and jaw pain on the side of the mouth where the tooth was removed and painful to the touch.
