You can definitely get a dry socket after a tooth extraction. You are not supposed to use straw's or smoke right after having it done. You probably should not have cleaned it out because a blood clot is supposed to form. Using warm salt water was a good idea. but, you should not swish to hard. Go back to your dentist and he will pack it and if there is an infection, he may give you an antibiotic for it. He may also prescribe a pain med.
