Dry socket is one of the most common complications of teeth extractions. Etiology and pathogenesis of dry socket are not clearly known but many related predisposing factors have been discussed. According to this, a cross- sectional study was conduced at the department of oral and maxillofacial surgery (Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Oct. 97- Jul. 98). 4880 teeth were extracted which 25 of them recalled with dry socket. The relationship between the effective factors and dry sockets was evaluated. The effective factors were as follows: age, sex, site of extraction, and trauma during exctraction, infection, oral hygiene, smoking, and systemic diseases. Results showed that the incidence of dry socket was %0.5, and the number of cases observed in women was two times more than men. Also, mandibular third molars were involved more than any other areas.
