How do I tell if the blood clot has dislodged? (After dental implant removal surgery)

After implant removal surgery
After two weeks you should not need to worry about the blood clot in the site where the implant was removed. This is something that can occur usually around the third day after an extraction and would be accompanied by pain and an unpleasant smell or taste.
