Dry sockets are known as dental alveolar osteitis, and it often happens that after a dental procedure there is a dry outlet. As a rule, a blood clot is expected to protect the bones and underlying nerves in the hole created by the extraction of a tooth. But if a blood clot does not form or is shed or dissolved due to fibrinolysis, then the socket is dried. The socket looks dry, and you can see bare bones. There is no form of pus in the socket.
A dry socket leads to severe pain, and the healing process is delayed. Pain in dry whey increases after 3-4 days after teeth extraction. Pain may be unbearable and can only be reduced after it has been adequately treated. Before we know how to prevent a dry plug, let’s take a look at the symptoms of dry pots, which can be very annoying.
After reading only the symptoms, you can imagine how a dry socket should lead to anxious days and sleepless nights. Therefore, it is better to prevent the formation of dry socket.
Dry socket prevention
To prevent a dry socket, we need to know what causes a dry socket. There are conflicting research results organized to identify factors that seem to be associated with an increase in the incidence of dry socket. But if these factors are taken into account when planning and continuing tooth extraction, the risk of a dry socket can be reduced to a minimum.
Traumatic teeth destruction: The chances of forming dry socket are more significant in cases of teeth traumatic discharge. It is believed that injured bone in the region of the extraction area releases compounds or tissue activators, which then diffuses into the blood clot formed in the tooth’s socket. These tissue activators are responsible for breaking down a blood clot. Therefore, the healing process of dry socket is delayed.
