Wisdom Teeth Risk/Infections

Wisdom Teeth Risk/Infections

What risk is involved with the surgery?

One of the major things we see is what we call a “Dry Socket”. This is caused when patients smoke, spit or use a straw within the week or 2 weeks from the day of the surgery. Also, if the patient fails to take care of the wound and take the antibiotics as prescribed, infections can develop.
