Maybe change toothpaste, as the flavor in some can elicit a gag reflex. Maneuver your jaw to different positions for help.

I had 2 wisdowm teeth removed this past Tuesday. I'm vomiting due to a virus, can this cause dry socket? What about an infection?

I had 2 wisdowm teeth removed this past Tuesday. I'm vomiting due to a virus, can this cause dry socket? What about an infection?

No, it cannot.: Dry Socket mostly occurs 1-2 days after extraction and its not an infection. Symptoms are pain which increases with time, bad breath, hollow socket (no clot). So, if teeth were removed on tuesday its been 4-5 days so most likely u are safe. And Virus infection doesn't cause dry socket. Vomiting might cause discomfort in mouth after muscles stretch.
