I had 4 wisdoms extracted, all laterally impacted. Pain started out mediocre, but by the 4th day I couldn't even sleep with the Oxycodones and Ibuprofin. I called my dentist concerned about dry socket on a Saturday. He told me to use my irrigation syringe to apply a drop of clove oil INTO the hole. I did and it worked like a miracle. 100\% clove oil. It will burn your lips for a bit, but it's worth it. Also, a majority of my pain was likely caused by the fact that I couldn't irrigate my sockets for the first four days. So much food came out the first time I did it, and that seemed to lessen my pain by about half within a couple hours.
