Instant Relief! I had my last molar on the left bottom of my mouth removed 6 days ago due to a break in the tooth down to the pulp. The extraction went ok or so I was told, I was completely out.

My Dr. sent me home with Demerol for the pain and prescribed one every 4 to 6 hours for pain. The first two days weren't bad and Aleeve seemed to do the trick just fine. On the third day I woke up with throbbing pain in the socket, a lump under my jaw below where the tooth was extracted and an inner ear ache that seemed to reach down the ear canal directly to where it connects to the throat.

I've been dealing with this horrible pain for the past 4 days. The demerol hasn't touched it and neither has gargling with warm salt water or medicated mouth wash.

I jumped on this site at 4:00 today and within 5 minutes found your remedy of Clove Oil. I immediately went to CVS and bought the recommended 'First Aid Toothache Medication Kit' complete with cotton plugs, tweezers and Clove oil. I soaked the plug in the oil, squeezed out the excess and stuck it in the socket for the recommended 1 minute.

Folks...I'm here to tell you...this works!!!!! Within 10 seconds, the pain was subsiding. Some of the oil spilled on my tongue and gum and they are now both sufficiently numb however, the burning from the oil is nothing compared to the relief that I now feel.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I could hug each and everyone of you for recommending this fix.

I am one happy camper :)

My husband awoke about 1:30am, I got on this site. While I was reading testimonials, he was dressing, told me to call CVS. They had it, he was gone & back home very quickly! After applying the Red Cross toothache kit, he got back in bed & was soon asleep. He said MANY THANKS to ALL of you!!!! He said he was at the point of going to the shower & putting a toaster in there with him (not suicidal), but he said it was such excruciating PAIN!!! After he applied Red Cross to his dry socket, WOW!!! Amazing RELIEF!!!!!
