What are the chances of getting dry socket 4 days after a wisdom tooth removal?
My teeth are still slightly sore, but nothing horrible. Is it still possible to get dry socket, or am I probably OK by now?

Dry sockets occur approximately 2 weeks after the extraction. They don't develop in a couple days. Dry sockets hurt worse than a regular toothache. You will know if you have one. Slight soreness is to be expected within a week or so of any extraction, especially oral surgery.
Take 800 mg of IBProfen every 6-8 hours and if the dentist gave you pain medicine, save it for night time so you can rest.
I hope this helps!

youre probably ok now but yes you can still get it 4 days later the reason i say youre ok is that you would already feel it and its BAD..

It is not uncommon to get dry socket after four days, however if you are only experiencing slight pain then this is probable normal, from what I have herd dry socket is extremely painful give it a few more days.

dry sockets normally happen 2 days after extractions onwards..but it is excruciating pain,that you could not possibly ignore with heading back to the dentist, so sometimes it can be just some food stuck in the hole, after 2 days you should be gently brushing the socket any way and warm salt rinse mouth wash,

very very good chance if you dont go by the directions

Only 4 days? Check in a couple of weeks and see how you are doing. The swelling and "chipmunk" phase are not even over yet. Some pain is to be expected - especially if they had to lay open your jaw.

slightly sore is normal, my dentist told me that dry socket can happen even weeks afterward. if you get it, you'll definitely know it. the pain went right to the top of my skull!
