I am about 90% sure that my clot fell out of the extraction site in my lower right wisdom extraction area. I know that this is the leading cause of dry socket and i was wondering what i can do specifically to prevent dry socket from occurring in that area other than keeping it clean. Any information or personal exeriences would be greatly appreciate, thanks.
