Progression Of Clot After Extraction
I had two lower molars extracted yesterday, side by side (not wisdom). I know about dry socket and am following every instruction, also on penicillin.The clot now looks dark red with some white around the edges. I go to the oral surgeon in a week to have the stitch removed. How long does the clot stay there? What changes does it go through? Despite the precautions I am following, I fear getting dry socket because they are lower teeth. If anyone knows what changes will take place before I see the normal color of the gum again, I'd appreciate your telling me. Thank you.
