Seven days ago I had three of my wisdom teeth removed. After a midnight trip to the ER due to uncontrollable vomiting and a case of dry socket, I thought I was finally on the mend. However, today I was eating a very soft grilled cheese sandwich and chicken noodle soup, and I felt slight pain on my lower left extraction site (not the dry socket site). I carefully rinsed my left side after my meal and noticed my saliva was very slightly blood-tinged. My question is: did I possibly create another dry socket or is this normal post-wisdom teeth extraction irritation? I do see my dentist tomorrow to have my dry socket re-packed, so I can also ask him, but this entire experience has made me super paranoid.
