Alveolar osteitis, also known as dry socket, remains amongst the most commonly encountered complications following extraction of teeth. A great body of literature is devoted to alveolar osteitis addressing the etiology and pathophysiology of this condition. In this article, a comprehensive critical review of the causes, signs and symptoms, preventions as well as treatment will be discussed. A clear understanding of alveolar osteitis will reduce the incidence of it on patients undergoing dental extraction.
