What is a dry socket?

A dry socket usually occurs when the extraction site of your tooth fails to form a clot and heal. When the clot dislodges, the socket will be dry and painful because there is no more clot covering the bone, hence the name dry socket. http://www.intelligentdental.com/2010/05/29/common-inflammatory-disease-of-the-jaw-bone/
