My wisdom teeth were extracted 5days ago. Upper left extraction bled tonight and what looked like a clot came out, will this result in dry socket?

In brief: It is possible

It develops in about 5% of tooth extractions.
See your surgeon/dentist for post op evaluation and dry socket prevention treatment.

Much less likely to have dry socket on upper. Good luck.
