Description Background: Dry socket is a common and unpleasant local complication following the extraction and surgical removal of teeth. This study was constructed to prevent or minimize this post operative complication.
Material and Methods: 81 patients were involved in this study, divided into two groups, an experimental group: the extraction socket was irrigated intra and immediate postoperatively with 0.5ml/ socket Ciprofloxacin, and a control group: the extraction site was irrigated in the same manner with normal saline.
Results: A total of 5 dry sockets were developed in this study, one case in the experimental group, and four cases in the control group. The incidence rate of dry socket in the experimental group was 2.4% while in the control group was 10%.
Conclusion: Although the incidence rate of dry socket was reduced from 10% in the control group to 2.4% in the experimental group, but the statistical analysis showed no significant effect for the Ciprofloxacin in the reduction of dry socket.
