Not only am I in hideous amounts of pain due to dry socket, I also can't eat anything harder than noodles. All I've eaten for the past 5 days is pudding, mashed potatoes, soup and mac and cheese well done. Now that I've managed to get dry socket, everything tastes like clove oil due to the gauze packed into my holes.

This sucks. I've lost 4LBS, but who the **** cares. I miss real food.

All I can offer is sympathy. I had a dry socket because the Vicodin made me puke. I know it's AWFUL! I didn't do anything but lay in bed and cry for two days. My poor kitty didn't know what was going on, but he tried his best to fix it

Just hang on. It will pass

Maybe my dentist(s) have been weird, but I've never had a tooth pulled where the hole wasn't filled with this sand/pebble sort of stuff and sewed shut. When I had my wisdom teeth out (All at one time) they filled and stitched, then I had to have one other one pulled years later at a different dentist - same thing. No dry sockets. Nobody else I know has ever heard of this...

Sorry...off topic.

I know mine was filled, and I think stitched too. I guess they can come out. It's definitely not what's supposed to happen!

Actually, there are alot of factors that can result in dry socket. There are alot of different ways that a tooth can come out. If it is a simple extraction (i.e. just pulled), you put pressure on the socket and a blood clot will form. IF it is complex, and the tooth has to be split and bone has to be removed (a surgical extraction) a dressing MAY be placed (called Surgicel) and sutures are put in to hold it in place. The theory is that the blood clot will form around the Surgicel.

HOWEVER, there ARE times that the blood clots dislodge.
This can happen if a patient uses a straw, for example, to drink. Or rinses a bit too vigorously, or food gets stuck back there and the clot comes out with the food. In this case, dry socket (or an inflammation where the clot WAS) can happen. It happens around 20% of the time regardless of surgical technique. Like the saying says, "S(*& happens".

I had BOTH wisdom tooth sites with dry socket and I feel for you. I survived on Motrin. Just keep in mind that noone ever died of pain and this too shall pass.
