2 Comments for the Dry Socket Home Remedy


I love this web site. After getting a lower molar removed 5 days ago, the pain has gotten progressively worse. Today is Sunday so getting back to the dentist is probably not an option. I read about the clove oil remedy suggested by many here. I called a couple of drug stores and none had it. Then an idea hit me. I had just recently stocked my spice cabinet with whole cloves to make a ham on NYE. I took some of them and used a mortar and pestle to grind the cloves. I then put a little water in the mash and ground some more to make a sort of paste. I stuck the paste in the molar socket and no more pain. The pastes stays in there pretty well. I have a clove taste in my mouth but I like the tastes of cloves. It's really working marvelously well!

how long did you keep the paste in the socket?


Thanks so much for this advice! Even with prescription strength pain meds, the pain became unbearable around 2:00 a.m. and with nearly all stores closed, I didn't know what I was going to do. The pain is GONE thanks to the cloves paste. Amazing!
