At Compounding Pharmacy of America, we specialize in alternate drug forms and doses so you can get the results you need to live a happier, healthier life. Our job is to make medication formulated for your specific needs, including medications and pastes for post dental procedures.
One of the most common oral surgeries is wisdom teeth removal, which can cause dry socket.
We provide compounding dry socket preparations that are designed to remove the pain associated with oral surgery all the while protecting your mouth throughout the healing process.
What Is Dry Socket?
Dry socket is a relatively common condition, most often associated with wisdom tooth removal surgery.
Dry socket, or alveolar osteitis, occurs when blood clots either fail to develop or wash away prematurely at the site of the specific tooth extraction.
When a tooth is pulled, under normal circumstances, a blood clot forms and stays in place until the gum is healed enough to be exposed again.
The clot protects nerve endings and underlying bone within the empty tooth socket. Clots will also offer a “foundation” for new tissue and bone as your mouth repairs itself.
Relief for Pain – Dry Socket Paste
Without this protective layer, the nerves and bone are left exposed and vulnerable, which causes intense pain that can radiate along the side of your face.
The tooth socket will become inflamed and often fills with food particles, which can lead to infection and bad breath. Symptoms usually show within three days after the tooth extraction took place.
The best solution is compounding dry socket preparations paste.
When properly applied, it fills in the open socket and protects nerve endings and bone in your jaw. It also gently but effectively numbs the pain associated with inflammation in the area.
For many people, socket paste is necessary to help them continue to go about their daily lives.
