Is dry socket following a wisdom tooth extraction something that i can absolutely avoid? I'm going to have my wisdom teeth pulled soon, and know about dry socket. Is there some bad luck involved in getting it, or if I do everything right, can I avoid it?

This : This question is asked numerous times, and the answer is the same: you can minimized your chances of getting a dry socket, but I do not believe there is a 100% fool proof, guaranteed way for you to avoid it. It is a complication of extracting teeth. Control the bleeding after the extraction by biting on gauze to let the blood clot form in the socket. Then, do not rinse or gargle for 24 hours. If you need to spit out, spit out gently and avoid opening wide (you can pull out the stitches, opening the wound). Eat soft foods, small bites. Have your dentist/surgeon guide you, and you should be fine. ...Read more
