this did not work for me at all i was still in excruciating pain and my pain medication is almost gone i am going insane because of this horrific pain


That is a bunch of crap no home remedy works for dry socket, I have tried them all and none worked. My dentist only prescribed 30 painkillers and they were gone within the first 3 days because of how bad the pain is I cannot even begin to describe how bad the pain is. I have 3 children and giving birth was not even as painful as dry socket it.


I have a dry socket and infection. Late saturday of course. I heated cloves in a bit of water, within about 10 min. was better enough that I stopped crying. I have a high pain treashold, so it helped me enough that I could tolerate it. Used a Qtip to apply. I agree, I gave natural birth and this pain is worse!!!


Im going through the dry socket thing too and its to the point that when i attempt to sleep within the first 5 mins Im instantly awake, causing me not to be able to sleep for now 5 days more then 5 mins at a time. I have gone to the dentist but Im having to wait 2 weeks to have the tooth removed. :(


This is actually not a home remedy. Clove oil is what a dentist will put in a dry socket. I have yet to see any posts on the correct way. Go to walgreens or any drug store. Get a bent tipped syringe and clove oil. Once you get home, mix 8oz of warm water and 1 teaspoon of salt. Draw this into the syringe and inject DIRECTLY into the socket. This will clean outp the socket. Once this is done take a long cotton swab and mix the clove oil half and half with warm water and swab the entire inside of the socket.

Hang on...... How come I can't feel my face? It burns! Good burn though. Time for a smoke


I had a dry socket after having a tooth extracted. After 3 days I was in the most horrible pain ever. I had to go back to the Dr. and they cleaned it out every day for 5 days and packed it with meds and upgraded my pain meds. This helped some, then someone told me about the Red Cross Toothache kit. I got it for $6.99 at my local pharmacy. It has helped with the pain and healing, better than anything!! The Clove Oil is wonderful, tastes awful, but best investment ever. Ask your Dr. for a syringe and put warm salt water in it and keep the socket cleaned out, they finally gave me one after 9 days!

How do you apply the cotton ball that comes in the clove kit? sit it on top or put in down in the hole?
