After removing wisdom teeth, dry socket can occur and can be an extremely painful, unpleasant condition, although only temporary. If lower wisdom teeth have been lost, it is more likely to occur rather than the higher ones. Fortunately, it affects fewer than 5 percent of patients, but steps can be taken to avoid it.
A socket is just a hole in the bone that extracted the tooth. It will fill with blood that will then clot and protect the underlying bone and nerves until healing occurs. For healing, the blood clot is essential. This can lead to a dry socket if the blood clot is dislodged.
What occurs then is the exposure of the bone and nerves to dust and food particles, bacteria and saliva that can be in the place where the blood clot is meant to be.

Fairfield, CT – Many consequences of losing teeth are noticeable, like the changes in the way you look and speak. Those results often cause low self-esteem and a lack of confidence that can make it difficult to develop new relationships or find jobs that require interacting with the public. You may suffer from embarrassment and insecurity because you look older than your true age and feel that people seem to notice your teeth more than they notice your attractive features.
However, some consequences of tooth loss are not so apparent, and those are even more serious due to the impact they have on your health. Bones must have a certain amount of stimulation to retain their solidity and shape, and supplying that stimulation to your jawbone is one of the important functions performed by your teeth. The brief contacts your teeth have with each other every day produce a continuous regeneration of bone. Therefore, loss of a tooth or teeth usually results in some loss of jawbone, eventual partial collapse of your lower face, sagging lips and risk of jaw fracture. You may also develop joint pain in your jaws as well as bite problems because your remaining teeth may partially move into spaces formerly occupied by your missing teeth.
