I had my lower second premolar extracted yesterday. A few hours after the extraction, I noticed that the blood was not clotting properly. I called the dentist and he told me to go back so he could put clotting agent to the socket. I went back to the dentist’s clinic immediately.
When I woke up today, I could no longer see the blood clot that formed yesterday in the socket. Please help. Am I likely to get dry socket? What should I do to keep the blood clot in there? I would be very grateful for any help!
