I am super paranoid about getting dry socket. I had a root canal and crown on my very back top molar and then 3 years later I got an infection in the root and they said failed root canal. Since I didnt have the $1100 to redo it, I just had them pull it. That was Friday morning and now its Monday afternoon. The pain is essentially gone, just a dull ache easily masked with tylenol.
I'm still scared to spit, suck through a straw, or have any sodas. Am I still at risk for dry socket or am I in the clear? Oh, I also had no stitches.
