Piece of Bacon Trapped in Wisdom Tooth Hole

I had both bottom wisdom teeth taken out eight days ago and they finally told me I could eat solid foods. So, of course, I decided it would be a really good idea to eat a piece of bacon. I ended up getting a decently large piece of it stuck in one of the holes and I tried to irrigate it out and finally after numerous times of irrigating it, it had finally surfaced enough for me to pull it out with tweezers. The bacon had a little blood on it, but nothing coagulated or dark. I was just wondering if this could have potentially messed up the blood clot down in the hole.

I think you're just fine. As long as you didn't get a lot of blood it doesnt sound as if you did any damage.

No believe me you would know if you messed up the blood clot because a dry socket is a pain you would know instantly
