How do you know if you have a dry socket if you feel extreme pain in the hole where the tooth was?

Extreme pain, bad taste, and rancid smell from the mouth are some symptoms of a dry socket. If you are feeling extreme pain where you have had a tooth extracted you should contact your dentist/doctor for help.
