I just had my top wisdom teeth extracted yesterday morning. The procedure went pretty quickly. The dentist did not find the need to put in any stitches. Instead he put in some sort of cellulose pack to help clotting. I am curious as to whether or not this is normal practice?
I am deathly afraid of dry sockets. Am I more susceptable?
My teeth were not impacted. I am a 29 year old male.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
