In brief: Very unlikely
Once treated the first time, then it is very unlikely.
If there are still issues from the removal of the wisdom tooth, then see an oral surgeon.

In brief: Yes, but unlikely.
If the clot has been disturbed , a dry socket post-extraction can occur..
.Especially in smokers. Usually a medicated dressing is changed every other day or so which would prevent the formation of another dry socket, or exposed bone.
