“Dry Socket” Warning

by shi
After the extraction of wisdom teeth a blood clot develops in the empty space to prevent infection. If the clot is disturbed or dislodged the bone and nerves can become exposed leading to “dry socket”. There are a few simple preventative measures that can be taken to avoid this happening including:

– Avoiding carbonated drinks

– Not touching the socket

– Not smoking

Your dentist should advise you on the best ways to prevent dry socket and may prescribe medication. As Dr. Michael Ellis states in a recent article “allowing the wound to heal undisturbed can help prevent dry socket” and you can get more details at https://consumer.healthday.com/dental-and-oral-information-9/misc-dental-problem-news-174/after-wisdom-tooth-removal-watch-out-for-dry-socket-721946.html.
