Thank goodness that didn’t happen to me. I got all 4 taken out and by day 3, I needed solid food so badly nothing could’ve stopped me. I went about eating regular food, waiting for that moment dry sockets would hit… it never came. I have a lot of sympathies for OP and I don’t blame them. Food tastes so much better when you can’t have them.

I was really fortunate, I only had two wisdom teeth (both tops I think) the other two were just naturally missing.

I had local freezing, no gas, 15 minutes in and out. I was eating solid food the same night.

I feel bad for people like OP getting dry socket, sounds pretty shitty.

You can eat solid food the next day if you want (carefully and gently). Its sucking (straws, lollipops, cigarettes, joints, etc.) that's the primary cause of a dry socket.
