    How long blood clot on extraction tooth last?
    Yea my question is how long does the blood clot that forms on the extracted site should last because I'm on my eighth day and the blood clot seems like its getting smaller so I'm worried that I might get dry socket or and infection so your help will be appreciated.

    8 days is a bit late for dry socket... I think you are in the clear bud!
