All You Need To Know About Dry Socket

14th / November / 2017

Dry socket is a common complication of teeth extraction that occurs when the healing blood clot doesn’t form or is dislodged.

Key takeaways:

  • Symptoms of dry socket include a bad taste or foul smell, severe pain and a missing clot at the extraction site.
  • Dry socket can be treated with pain medication and rinsing the socket with saltwater to prevent infection.
  • If you experience severe pain several days after an extraction, see your dentist.

“After developing dry socket once, a person is at higher risk to develop it again following another tooth extraction.”
