Clot loss: The danger after extraction is a dry socket. This results from a clot never forming or being lost. You can't control a clot never forming, but you can control a clot being dislodged or lost. Spices foods may burn, but the won't dislodge the clot. Alcohol, excessively hot temp foods, hard rough foods, that's what to avoid in the first few days. Remember to eat on the opposite side!
