A dry socket is often associated with wisdom tooth removal, but it can still occur when any tooth is extracted. Following a tooth extraction, blood clots will form in the space left by the tooth to protect underlying bone and nerves.

A dry socket occurs when the clot is prematurely removed and exposes both bone and nerve tissue, leading to severe pain or infection. If you have a dry socket, please call us at 205-822-3222 so our team can have it examined and treated.
