Blood Clot In Tooth Socket
What to do if i think i dislodged a blood clot in my wisdom tooth socket. How can I get it to re-clot?
Keep it clean: Blood clot forms when a wound from extraction is healing. It is not necessary for the actual healing process. It acts more like a dressing to protect the wound site. Keep the site clean and healing tissue will grow over the wound site. This will happen under the blood clot also. The process usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
