- A dry socket (alveolar osteitis) is a painful dental condition that sometimes occurs after a permanent adult tooth has been extracted. A dry socket occurs when the blood clot at the tooth extraction site does not develop, or loosen, or dissolve before the wound heals.
- Usually, a blood clot forms at the site of the tooth extraction. This blood clot acts as a protective layer over the underlying bone and nerve endings of the empty tooth socket. The clot also forms the basis for new bone growth and soft tissue development on the clot.
- Exposing the underlying bone and nerves causes severe pain, not only in the socket, but also along the nerves radiating to the side of your face. The outlet will catch fire and fill up with food particles, making the pain worse. If you develop a dry socket, pain usually starts one to three days after your tooth has been removed.
- A dry base is the most common complication after tooth extraction, e.g. B. the removal of third molars (wisdom teeth). Over-the-counter drugs alone are not enough to treat orbital pain. Your dentist or oral surgeon can suggest treatments to relieve your pain. Dry socket treatment in Khammam
