Could I be getting dry socket or am I going crazy? If you answer rudely, I'll flag you.
This is driving me crazy right now. It feels like I have a piece of food stuck in my teeth around the area that I had a tooth pulled 5 days ago. I don't feel any pain, just annoying discomfort as I try to both get whatever it is out and ignore the discomfort when I give up. I've tried brushing my teeth, I've tried rinsing out and I've even tried to look back in that area the best I could. I've run a finger around the teeth over there and I can't figure out what is going on! I thought of dry socket but everything talks about how painful it is and how that's a big sign on top of bad taste in the mouth which I don't have right now but did have earlier today after taking my antibiotics which I understand could have been the cause but I am really going crazy at 2:30 am trying to figure out what is causing the feeling of some food particle stuck in my mouth when I can't find any such thing in there.
