I had excruciating, throbbing pain 5 days after getting all four wisdom teeth removed. My entire right side of my face was pulsing pain. Nothing was treating the pain and I was keeping up with all medications and followed my dentist instructions. I soon concluded I had DRY SOCKET. Worse than any pain I have ever felt. I cam across this website and in entire desperation ran to Hannafords to buy some clove oil. As soon as I got in I rinsed my mouth with salt and water combination as directed by my dentist. Then I mixed a few drops of clove oil into a few drops of water. I mixed it with a q-tip and applied a few drops to the wound. It didn't strike me as a giant hole like some people mentioned, just a fleshy wound. The taste was bad, but WELL WORTH IT. It dropped my pain by 95%. Even after I ate and rinsed with salt water again, the clove oil continued to do its job. I am 100% convinced that natural medicine is better than synthetic drugs. If you go to the dentist they would 'fill' the hole the same way you could by rolling a piece of gauze, dipping it in the oil/water mix and putting it in the hole (socket). But like I said, I don't see a socket, just a wound and just putting the oil on made a HUGE difference. PLEASE, if you are experiencing dry socket. DO THIS!!
