Please do NOT try to treat a dry socket by rinsing the area with ANYTHING! If you rinse the area you will end up washing away the things your body is trying to accumulate in that area to form a blood clot. The absence of this protective dry socket is what is causing you to feel intense pain. The BEST solution is to visit the dentist who extracted your tooth and allow them to dress the area.Until that time take over the counter pain meds. This appt is usually of no charge.
