This clinical study was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of locally applied 9-aminoacridine in Gelfoam in reducing the incidence of dry socket formation after third molar extractions. Results indicated that this technique was not effective. The incidence of dry socket formation in smokers and nonsmokers was compared. Also, the influence of surgical trauma on dry socket formation was examined.
