How do you treat and clean the socket after extraction of an infected endodontic tooth and prepare it for the bone graft for ridge preservation? I have heard not to use chlorhexidine after curetting the socket. So is just the sterile saline or water sufficient along with PO antibiotics? Is it a good idea to mix some clindamycin in the bone graft and then pack it?
