You have to mix both ACETAMINOPHEN and IBUPROFEN together to get relief from dry socket. My dentist says this is better than T3's. I recently suffered with not one but two dry sockets from my wisdom teeth extractions. It's been a week today that i am now pain free. I was in pain for 17 days but i still went about my everyday life. This is the best advice that you will read on these pages trust me i know what works. Clove oil worked for about 5 minutes if that every time i used it. Besides it tastes terrible. Vanilla did not work. Honey and peanut butter did not work. This is what works. Instead of buying that Red Cross Emergency Toothache kit at the pharmacy, pick up a big bottle of extra strength ez tab tylenol and a big bottle of extra strength liquid advils instead. You need to take 2 extra strength tylenols and 1 - 2 extra strength liquid advils every three hours around the clock. I know it sounds like a lot of pills and i don't like taking pills but i drank a ton of water to help flush my kidneys. It puts the pain level at a 1 if that and i had two dry sockets. I would take these 3-4 pills right before bed and i would take twelve pills to bed with me. I would fall asleep but wake up a few hours later in so much pain that i would take my next batch and around thirty minutes later i could fall back to sleep again. I would then wake up around four hours later with the worst pain ever in both sides of my mouth up to my temples. You need the pills right there so you can pound them back and let them kick in so you can sleep again. This made it bearable.I just kept taking 3 pills every three hours just so that pounding and throbbing stayed away and it worked. I also went back to my dentist on day 7 and got my teeth packed. This is where he confirmed that i was so lucky to get two dry sockets. You can taste clove oil in this packing but it tastes better than clove oil at home. Do not pick at it or pull it out. I let it come out all by itself. If you think you have a dry socket in the first week, get to the dentist. The sooner they pack it the better. The dentist told me that i should have been in there on day 3.Try those pills and leave the oil of clove stuff at the health food store. I hope this helps someone. Nothing else on this website helped me with my pain. Take care.
