Not all the time, unless you have an infection too. Usually you would experience a lot of pain from a dry socket, a bad taste in your mouth, and a difficulty of opening the mouth.

Which means that newbies will have more dry sockets than seasoned surgeons.


GO BACK TO YOUR DENTIST. THEY WILL NORMALLY REPACK THE SOCKET.

Eating after treatment of a dry socket when a tooth was pulled, is usually a matter of comfort. Try not to eat anything like nuts, that will lodge in the socket.

Stomata are just openings made when guard cells swell. they swell with a lot of available water. when its dry they close up. dry weather causes them to close because the water evaporates.

its painfull swollen reddish and you can see the hole (socket) open fully or partly.


sucking the cigarette (like a straw) is what causes the dry socket. just like a straw can cause dry socket, cigarettes basically do the same thing. it is recommended to wait 3-5 days to smoke a cigarette after getting your wisdom teeth pulled.
