Can You Get Dry Socket With Stitches
Not likely: The stitch coming out will not cause a dry socket if there is a healthy clot in the extraction site. It may appear that there isn't but the extraction site is as long as tooth that was in it and the primary area that dry socket occurs is more than 3 mm below the surface of the gum. The hole you see is probably very shallow. Follow your post operative instructions and consult your dentistSee 1 more doctor answer
Post op pain: You may just be dealing with some aggressive post operative pain associated with the difficult extraction. Impacted teeth tend to require the removal of bone and require more healing time than erupted teeth. If its been over a week and there's still pain or more pain, contact your dental surgeon.
I was stitched up afterwards, but some say that does not prevent dry socket. How do I know if I have it?
Pain: The hallmark for dry socket is extreme pain that feels like it radiates to your ear and entire lower jaw. Usually things seem ok for the first couple days after the surgery then around 72hrs, the pain hits you like a ton of bricks. If you are just having a little soreness you're probably alright, otherwise have it checked out.

Can the oral surgeon tell if I have dry socket without opening the stitches? Have migraines 4 days later. Don't have $ for more sedation.
Dry socket?: Yes a surgeon can tell a dry socket without removing sutures but migraines are not really associated with dry socket. I would return to your oral surgeon to have the extraction sites checked. There probably will be no charge for the visit as a post-op followup.See 3 more doctor answers
I had 2 teeth extracted monday at 3pm, no stitches, am I still at risk for dry socket if I smoke? My dr said 48hrs it's been 96 120 hrs at 4pm
Smoking: Smoking will increase risk of dry socket for as long as 7 days out. Smoking will slow and alter healing process, increase risk of oral, throat, pancreas, facial, lung cancer as well as stroke, heart damage kidney and liver damage, and can harm unborn. Your risk of severe damage to your body is greater than risk of dry socket. You've gone this long, please don't smoke.See 1 more doctor answer
Timing: It is normal to have postoperative pain from wisdom tooth extractions. However bad the pain was, if it seems to get much much worse about 3-4 days following the extraction, then there is a good chance it may be a dry socket. Another symptom can be pain radiating up to your ear area. Dry sockets are usually from lower wisdom tooth extractions. Your dentist can treat a dry socket very easily.See 3 more doctor answers

4 wisdom teeth removed 7 days ago am I clear of dry socket? I have no harsh pain just achy. Dissolve Stitches are also in still what should I do?
Should be OK: 7 days is past the risk window for a dry socket. Significant pain and a foul taste are indications of that post-extraction complication. Depending on the complexity of the extractions a little achiness a week out is probably normal. If it isn't resolving in a few days, get it looked at though. Good Luck!
7 days ago all my top teeth pulled with sutures. Today the stitches started falling out. I saw a big hole with a white spot in it. Is it a dry socket?
Post extraction: It is common for sutures to come out after about a week. This is part of normal healing. If you had a dry socket you would have intense pain. Since you didnot say anything about pain, it is unlikely that you have a dry socket. Call the extracting dentist with you questions about healing concerns.See 1 more doctor answer

Explain: Explain your dilemma to your specialist Oral Surgeon and ask this question of him/her. The Surgeon will do everything possible to expedite your healing process, despite the fact that you are doing everything you can to interfere with healing. Smoking will dramatically increase risk of complications, and in the long run will probably kill you. Now would b e the perfect time to man up and quit.See 2 more doctor answers
