Are you suffering from a dry socket in Norristown, Pennsylvania? If so, Dr. Brian Carp and our Carp Dental team are here to help you!

Dry sockets are painful dental problems that occur when the blood clot in the tooth extraction site is displaced. When this happens, the healing process is delayed and your comfort is altered. It’s best to call 610-275-1565 and schedule an appointment with your dentist when this occurs. When you come into our office, you can expect the following treatment steps:

-Your dentist will clean the extraction site and will place a medicated dressing inside the socket. This will help you begin the healing process once again.

-Then, you will need to change the medication daily until the pain is gone and until the socket begins to heal.

-Your dentist will prescribe a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, to help you receive the comfort you deserve.

-Please do not use tobacco products during the healing process.

After your dry socket has been treated, you will have the best oral health possible and the extraction site will finally begin to heal. If you have any questions or if you would like to learn more, please feel free to call our office and talk to a member of our team. We are happy to give you the information you need so you can better understand your oral health!
