If you’re suffering from a dry socket, it’s best to visit your dentist, Dr. Kurt A. D'Amico, as soon as possible so you can receive the necessary treatment and you can finally improve your oral health and relieve your pain.
A dry socket in Jamesville, New York, occurs when you’ve had a tooth extracted but you haven’t necessarily taken great care of the extraction site. When this happens, the blood clot is dislodged and the healing process is delayed. So, when you come into The Dental Gallery for treatment, you can expect the following steps:
-Your dentist will clean the extraction site and will place a medicated dressing inside the socket. This will help promote healing.
-You will need to change the dressing once a day until the socket begins to heal and until the pain and discomfort disappears.
-Your dentist may also prescribe a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug that will help you relieve the pain and discomfort you feel. Take this medication as recommended.
-Avoid using tobacco products because it can delay the healing process.
