Hi

I’m Thinking Of Having An Instant Implant At The Same Time As Extraction As The Tooth Is Part Of My Smile Line..

I Was Just Wondering If You Can Get Dry Socket After An Immediate Implant..?

Any Advice Welcome Please.. Feeling Extremely Nervous Already..

Thank You!! Xx

No you can't. There isn't a socket to get "dry" if you think about it... there's an implant in it :)

That's not for dry socket, that's to make sure the implant integrates properly.

When I had mine, there was a blood clot right after, but it was covering the stitches. It wasn’t the same thing as a clot that covers the bone in an extraction hole. I was told to rinse the area after 48 hours. Basically don’t disturb the area as you don’t want to mess with the implant, especially right away after placement.
