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.

By the time the dry socket develops, the clot is gone and the gum has capped. Rinsing after it has developed will remove food and putrefied material, though it can be agonizing. Do not rinse briskly after extraction for a few days, but if dry socket develops; rinse as much as you can stand it.
