Can you get dry socket even after stitches are pulled?

Let's say you just had your stitches out, like I am in a few hours. Doc says, "Alright no problems, healed nicely." Do i still have a chance of getting dry socket even after the stitches are out?

Re: Can you get dry socket even after stitches are pulled?

A dry socket occurs when the blood clot dislodges and the bone beneath is exposed to air and debris. If the dentist/surgeon saw any signs that the tissue had not completely healed over the wound, they would not have taken the stitches out. It's rare that a dry socket will develop after the stitches have been removed.
