  • The dry socket is there because of dislodgement of the clot wich is formed after the bleeding is stopped in the extraction socket so any activity which can cause the dislodgement of clot can cause the dry scket. It is advisale not to smoke even through nostrils after the extraction minimum for 24 hours.
