Dry Socket (Causes, Treatment & Prevention)
Dry Socket Pain
When a tooth is removed, the normal healing process involves a blood clot forming in the empty tooth socket. The clot protects the bone and nerve endings that have been exposed and aids in healing. A dry socket (known as alveolar osteitis), occurs when either the blood clot is dislodged or dissolves before the extraction site heals. Prevention is always the best medicine, and there are steps you and your dentist can take (before and after surgery) to help you avoid discomfort.
The Academy of General Dentistry warns that smoking and using tobacco products increases your risk of developing a dry socket, by decreasing the blood supply to the newly formed clot. Stop smoking prior to your surgery and don't smoke after your surgery. Inform your dentist about any of your medications that might interfere with normal blood clotting, whether over-the-counter, prescription or supplements.
Dry Socket Treatment
All-natural StellaLife VEGA Oral Care Gel provides quick pain relief and has been found to speed up healing. Dentists have found it effective in the pain management of dry sockets and recovery following dental surgical & non-surgical procedures. The 14 active ingredients used in gel act as an analgesic (pain relief) and has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It is easy to use when following the instructions on the label.

Dry Socket Remedy
The sign that you may have a dry socket is an intense throbbing pain that may radiate to your temple, ear, eye area or neck. Managing a dry socket with over-the-counter medications won't give you the relief you need.
The primary treatment for a dry socket is pain management, so in addition to the StellaLife VEGA Oral Care Gel, your dentist may prescribe painkillers and send you home with directions on how to use ice packs. Ask your dentist about our all-natural gel for the dry socket.
Adults and children over the age of 6 years: Wash hands. Apply to upper and lower gums and surgical area using a cotton swab. Allow gel to dissolve. Do not eat or drink for 20 minutes after application. Apply 3 times per day or as directed by a dental professional. Consult your dental professional for use in children under 6 years of age.
