Yea I would agree with you. I also got dry socket on one of my wisdom teeth but once i realized the stiches disolved I noticed food got stuck in my gums. The food that was stuck gave me more pain and bad breath emminating from the socket becasue I got dry socket. I rinsed gently but it didnt take the stuck food out. So i began to rinse vigorisly with very warm water until the pieces of food came out. (rinsing with cold water did not work) I was surpirsed how much junk I had stuck there. It gave me relief when i got the smelly pieces of food out. I also used water and diluted listerene. I went to the dentist and he asked me if I had pain. I told him it was very minimal and an over the counter pill would relieve it. My dentist advised me he thought it was going to be worse and just added some gel to begin heeling. He told me I had dry socket. I reasearched it and it seems everybody that had dry socket had severe pain. So if you just rinse AND MAKE SURE FOOD DOESNT GET STUCK then u would avoid infection/pain. After my wisdom teeth were pulled I was advised i could eat solids after a few days. If I went through it again I would only eat yogurt, non sugar jello, country chix noodle soup (non cunky type), only soups, protein shakes, fruit shakes, banannas, just eat very soft foods, i would avoid any type of meat or bread!!!
