Hi there :) me again :redface: sorry!!!!! but very much fretting about losing the clot on extraction site LL6.

Do sonic brushes (philips diamond clean on sensitive setting) dislodge clots even when used on the rest of the mouth away from the extraction side?
(I am using a TEPE special care super soft brush around the extraction site, and using my sonic brush switched OFF, on the rest of my teeth, but can i switch the sonic brush ON for the rest of my mouth, or is there a risk the vibration, even on the rest of my mouth could dislodge the clot?)

Many thanks
Soupy

Not a chance, the sonic brushes just aren't that powerful.
