There are many times when a dentist will need to remove wisdom teeth. However, some patients can suffer from a condition known as “dry socket” after the procedure. This is caused by the premature removal of a natural blood clot that protects the empty space immediately after an operation.
What are some of the symptoms of this condition?
– A foul odour present in the mouth.
– Dull and throbbing pain is often felt.
– Pain radiating up to one’s ear.
“Allowing the wound to heal undisturbed can help prevent dry socket.”
