How long did your tooth extraction hole take to heal?

Had a 2nd molar extracted and it’s been 5 painful days ( suspected dry socket). The pain comes and goes so who knows. My extraction was complicated, lots of trauma unfortunately. How long did your extraction hole take to seal up the hole? And which tooth was it.

I had my wisdom teeth taken out over 10 years ago, so I can't recall exactly, but I think it was around 2-3 weeks until it didn't feel like I had huge gaping holes in my mouth anymore. 5 days isn't long at all.... give it some more time. Ask your oral surgeon/dentist for a Tylenol 3 prescription, if you haven't already. Hope you feel better soon.

Now day 8, hopefully this healing moves faster lol. I went in and my dentist confirmed the dry socket issue. Pain seems to have lessened now, which is a godsend. You know what I mean if you get this. For some reason I thought 1-2 weeks and it should seal up, clearly I was wrong lol.
