Patient Comments: Dry Socket - Treatment

What treatment did you have for a dry socket?

Comment from: flyerfan, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: December 17

Clinically my symptoms were textbook, foul taste with malodorous smell. Upon diagnosis I was treated with packing of medicinal iodoform every other day. It lasted for about 2 weeks.
