The gap is cavity inside tooth due to tooth decay. Get it filled quickly to avoid further more pain and infection. Brush regularly two times daily. Rinse your mouth after each meal.

Dry Socket - Causes and Treatments

MDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Are you experiencing toothache that continues for several days after having a tooth pulled out? Does the pain keep on worsening, and continue over several days? These symptoms is a clear symptoms that you are might imply that you are suffering from a condition known as dry socket or alveolar osteitis. The socket refers to the hole in the bone from where a tooth has been pulled out. A blood clot gets formed in the socket for the protection of the underlying bones and nerves. Sometimes, the clot might dissolve some days after the extraction, which leaves the underlying bone and nerve exposed to anything that enters the mouth, such as air, food and , water, etc. This may cause an infection accompanied by severe pain.

Causes

Several people are more prone to getting a dry socket after having a tooth removed. This includes people who smoke a lot, have a poor sense of oral hygiene and people who get their wisdom tooth pulled. People using birth control pills and the ones who face unusual trauma during tooth extraction are also likely to get dry socket.

Symptoms

The site from where the tooth has been removed will have a dry opening with a dark blood clot present in it. In case there is no blood clot and only whitish bone in the area, dry socket is indicated. Bad breath and foul mouth odor are observed.

Treatment

Several over the counter, nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory medicines or NSAIDS are prescribed for easing the pain, and discomfort caused because of dry socket. These medicines are not sufficient at times and stronger medicines have to be taken. Sometimes the affected area is anesthetized.

Your dentist will clean the socket and remove any kind of debris from the socket hole. The socket will then be filled with a medicated dressing for healing. A special paste may be used as well. You need to visit the dentist frequently for changing the dressing. This must be continued until your pain goes away, and the sockets are healed. Several antibiotic medicines may be prescribed in order to prevent infection in the socket. You must rinse with salt water or with a special mouthwash regularly for fast and effective recovery.

You should strictly avoid cigarettes and other tobacco products after the treatment of dry socket as tobacco is a strong risk factor. Any habit or practice which might hamper blood clotting should be avoided. If you take birth control pills, always have a tooth removed on the day when you receive the lowest dose of estrogen as estrogen hampers blood clotting. Your dentist plays a very important role in treating dry socket, therefore regular visits to the doctor are a must and you should visit him regularly.

Gum disease is caused by a build-up of plaque and affects most people at some time in their life. There are two main stages of gum disease; gingivitis and periodontitis. One of the common signs of early gum disease is bleeding gums, especially when brushing teeth. See your oral health professional if you notice signs of gum disease as they can help prevent it from becoming more serious.

Mouth ulcers usually heal on their own in a weeks to 10 days time. But if the ulcer is not healing with all the remedies you have taken and is of such a long duration than it can be a sharp tooth which is causing this ulcer. Long standing ulcers can turn in to serious problems and one should never take them lightly. I would suggest you to consult as soon as possible.

Got treatment RCT means your tooth affected by caries lesion. This happens just because of lack of oral hygiene maintenance. So please brush twice daily and be sure that while brushing your brush is approaching every corner of every tooth and after brushing use mouthwash. If you are sweet lover and frequently using food containing sugar. Please rinse with water after finishing. By taking proper care you will not follow any further problem at your age.

Dont worry, start warm saline rinses alternately with a chlorhexidine mouthwash. Also apply ulci-heal gel over that surface.
