My Wisdom Extraction Series grows as my mouth heals. This piece refers to the most common complication to oral surgery, dry socket. Upon extraction of a tooth, a clot is formed protecting the hole left in your jaw. If that clot dislodges it leaves the nerve and bone exposed. “Dry Socket” represents that ominous feeling of the possibility of great pain.
