The degree of pain is the main determinant of a dry socket. If you develop a dry socket, we are only concerned with managing your pain. A dry socket will result in delayed healing, and we can't do anything about that; a dry socket will eventually heal without any intervention.

The problem is not really the pain, is the taste I have in my mouth all day. I'm unable to talk with people for how bad smell it..

Well, I'd gently rinse it out with salty water, and maybe use a mouthwash to disguise the smell. It'll go away in a couple of days.
