After you have a tooth removed, a scab like material forms over the wound, or empty socket where the tooth was. If you manage to bump, or tear this off, by eating or brushing, you will end up with what the dentist would refer to as a "dry" socket. I know, because I accidentally bore down on a piece of french bread, and the bread got lodged in the socket. The pain is unbearable. So be careful for about 2 weeks. And, the older you are, the longer it takes for the injury to heal.

The clove oil patches that the dentists sometimes place over a dry socket can be dislodged from eating or brushing. They are packed in, but not stitched or anything like that. You still have to be careful for a few days after it is placed.

How soon after eating should you brush your teeth?

Floss and rinse with water as soon as possible, but do not brush just yet. The acid in our food and drink erodes the enamel and minerals that keep our teeth protected. Brushing when these protections are weak damages our teeth and brushes away enamel that can never come back. It is best to wait around 30 minutes before brushing.

Is it a problem if you wore your patch on the fourth week and now you're on the 5th week but your period has not come yet?

Your period will not come until you remove the patch. It is not advisable to do this on a regular basis. Count the 4th week (where you should've removed the patch and didn't) as week one. You are therefore currently on week two. Continue for week three and remove the patch for the fourth week.
