A dry socket is when the Hole that is formed in the bone with a tooth removal loses it's protective layer (scab). The bone becomes ​exposed and is very painful. The treatment for this is to numb the area up and to clean it all out so that it stimulates blood flow and creates a new clot and start the healing process again. the patient will again have to avoid anything that can cause the disruption of the clot including suction like a straw or cigarette, anything that makes the blood pump like aerobics, acidic or carbonated drinks. These should all be avoided for 72 hours.
