A stitch came out and now there's a hole. Will i get dry socket?

Not likely

Dry_tooth_socket
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 Dentist .

Yes

Yes you can if dislodging the blood clot that forms inside the socket and therefore disturbing the healing process,dry socket can happen again bad again and might get worse and leads to osteomyelitis which is inflammation of the bone of the jaw.

Can you get dry socket if the blood clot remains?

Not likely

"dry socket" occurs when the blood clot fails to mature properly and thus the body begins to break it down.

Can I get dry socket after a week?

dry socket

Pain
A dry socket does not usually start causing symptoms until about 4 days following an extraction and lasts about 2 weeks. Your dentist can pack the socket with a medicated material that will ease the pain. You may also need an analgesic to help out.

How can i make sure I don't get a dry socket?

Prevention

Blood
Follow the oral surgeons directions concerning eating, drinking, oral hygiene. Basically, you don't want to dissolve or dislodge the blood clot protecting the extraction site. If you do, a dry socket may result & will need to be treated to prevent infection & pain.

How can I be assured that i won't get dry socket?

Compliance

Dry_tooth_socket
The best way to lessen your chances of developing a dry socket is to follow your oral surgeon's post op instructions to the letter. Unfortunately, like any surgery, there is no way to be 100% assured that complications will not happen.

Dr. LaMont L. Gee answered:

Can you get a dry socket 6 days after the surgery?

Dry Socket

Dry_tooth_socket
Typically a dry socket becomes painfully evident about 4 days following an extraction of a tooth. The greatest percentage of dry sockets occur in the lower arch. See your dentist who can pack the site with a special dry socket dressing. This, along with an analgesic, should keep you comfortable until the pain subsides and healing is underway. In about two weeks you should be comfortable.
