I had all four wisdom teeth surgically removed five days ago. I just started irrigating my lower sockets with salt water using the syringe, and have noticed that the last couple times I have spit out what looks like small pieces of dried blood. Is this normal, or is it part of the blood clots coming out? I’m afraid I’m going to get dry socket.

It should be fun. The bleeding site can still produce a bit of bleeding after 5 days and there is no reason to do anything about it.
