The dry sockets are the worst part; in fact, some of my sutures came out a little early and I can still feel a little hole where my bottom-right tooth was.
They key is to be diligent in keeping them clean. Your doctor should have given you a thing that looks like a syringe with a plastic, curved point. Make sure that nothing you eat get stuck in those holes or you will be sorry.
I was given nothing of the sort.
Have a wife, girlfriend, friend, parent, or someone contact the dentist and get one.
Should have given you one with some gauze, directions on how to keep the surgical areas clean, etc.
I was given everything but that. I have the gauze, directions, and my meds...no syringe like thingy for cleaning measures...hopefully one night won't cause too many problems.
