food stuck in wisdom tooth etraction site...

After a wisdom tooth extraction, what should you do if you've accidentally gotten a bit of food stuck in the hole?

I've attempted to rinse with warm salt water, but it doesn't seem to help. If it's any help to know, I believe it's a bit of banana muffin. I'm five days out from the surgery, too.

Also, is there any real danger in catching food other there? Will it cause dry socket or an infection?

Thanks so much. I really appreciate it. :)

You can also try a syringe.  Fill it with water & use that to specifically clean that area.
