Is there supposed to be a hole after wisdom tooth extraction?
There will be a hole where the tooth was removed. Brushing your teeth is okay – just be gentle at the surgical sites. A dry socket is when the blood clot gets dislodged prematurely from the tooth socket. Symptoms of pain at the surgical site and even pain to the ear may occur 4-5 days following surgery.
How do you keep your wisdom teeth holes clean?
Caring for the tooth extraction site
- Keep your mouth clean with a saltwater rinse a few times a day.
- Brush teeth very gently.
- Drink plenty of fluids.
- Avoid food, beverages, and activities that threaten your blood clot.
- Rest from strenuous work as long as possible.

What happens if food gets in your wisdom teeth holes?
Food and bacteria can get trapped between the tooth and the gums. A partially impacted wisdom tooth has a higher risk of infection. This is because its shape and angle make decay more likely to happen. A tooth infection or cavity happens when an overgrowth of bacteria makes holes in the outer, hard enamel layer.18 Dec 2018
