Usually you are given antibiotics to ward off any infection. And it will usually fix itself. That is my understanding.

A small surgical procedure is sometimes necessary to close the hole if the gum tissue grows together with the sinus tissue to form a tunnel

Yes, it is possible to get a dry socket 6 or 7 days following an extraction.

The empty tooth socket following removal of the tooth.

It is a bit unlikely to get dry socket 10 days after an extraction, but not impossible. Usually dry socket occurs 3-5 days after the extraction.

Dry sockets occur when a tooth has been extracted. Without the extraction, there is no socket.

you should not suck on your extraction socket. The increased pressure can lead to dry socket, which is very painful. Your friendly oral surgeon.
