Wisdom Tooth Extraction w/ NO STITCHES

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.

Re: Wisdom Tooth Extraction w/ NO STITCHES

ive had all my wisdom teeth out at the dentist ,mind you one at a time
but i never had stitches in mine?

just had normal packed for a hour or so to stop the bleeding and cleaned my mouth out next day with salt water

so i wouldnt say it was anything unusual see how you go if your still worried call or go to your dentist for advice
