    it’s been about 5 days since the tooth got pulled but the stitches came off about 30 minutes ago while eating. It seemed from what I read that it normally happens pretty early into the recovery period
    thanks for the help
    (sorry for disgusting teeth by the way)

    Dry socket occurs 3-4 days post-op. After that, it's clear sailing.
