    The Symptoms of “Dry Socket” After Wisdom Tooth Removal

    teeth health smile dentistThere 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.”
