I did an extraction of an endodontically treated tooth. I only used a collagen membrane and closed with sutures. Patient rinsed his mouth and looks like he lost his sutures the same day. It’s been 2 days now and he is having lots of pain. I suspected a dry socket, but when we looked, some of the membrane was already was gone and some epithelialization was seen. We went ahead and irrigated the socket. I exposed the socket and it was curetted and we achieved hemostasis. Patient was prescribed antibiotics and pain medications. Patient is still having pain but no swelling. What can be done now?
