Alveolar osteitis or dry socket is characterized by a painful oral condition that can take place after a permanent adult tooth extraction. The condition takes place when blood clot at the area of tooth extraction has dissolved or dislodged before the healing of the wound. Dry socket usually occurs after tooth extractions and the pain begins 1-3 days following the extraction. Schedule an appointment with a dentist at Brighton Implant Clinic for the treatment of this painful medical condition.
