Treatment for dry sockets, Dentist in Tooting, Emergency dentist Tooting

One of the complications that comes from having a tooth extracted is known as dry socket. The typical scenario for dry socket is the occurrence of throbbing pain about two to four days after the tooth is extracted. 

Dry socket is a condition in which there is inflammation of the jawbone. Here is often a foul odour or bad taste emanating from the socket. Dry socket must be treated by a dentist in Tooting Medical Centre. 

Usually the dentist will place a medicated dressing in the socket that can soothe and moderate the pain. The dressing will need to be changed regularly , in some cases every day. Additionally, medications can be prescribed to manage the pain.
