i've extracted my infection tooth (which it had root canal done 6 years ago)
on 4 days ago. my dentist told me no to suction the area until the clot is made and covered the area, but i did. what happened now is it had dry socket and i had to go back to dentist and put the medicine twice(whic is dry socket paste)But still it hurts after 2hours later.
what i did today was i went back and he scraped my bones in the socket area,and sutured and told me not to rinse or spit until next morning.
but my face is swelling around the chin area and still bothers me every secs.
what should i eat and avoid?
