At Goehring Dental, Dr. Goehring prides himself on his passion and dedication to excellence in the area of wisdom teeth. One of the most common complications that can arise after a wisdom tooth extraction is a condition known as alveolar osteitis or “dry socket.” This condition can be excruciatingly painful and can occur if the healing clot that normally develops on the extraction site becomes dislodged or dissolves and leaves the underlying area exposed to air, fluids, and other substances that can cause an infection. Fortunately, dry socket is easily treatable and highly preventable if the proper precautions are taken after the wisdom tooth extraction. Read on to learn more about dry socket, the signs and symptoms of it, and the best ways to prevent it following oral surgery.
