“Dry Socket” Warning

11th / August / 2017

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
