Food getting stuck
I had my wisdom tooth removed 2 weeks back. A small socket has formed where food is getting stuck. Even after many gargles food not coming out. I experience no pain but it is annoying. Is this a health  issue.

it is absolutely notmal. don't worry about the small sccop like bony formation where you find the food deposits . it is part of the healing process and will develop into normal healthy bony ridge in no time till that time it is good to keep the area clean

It is nothing to worry about. Please visit your dentist and have it checked. you would most likely require a local irrigation and depending on the size of the socket, they would suggest any further management.
