Thanks to all who suggested the Red Cross Toothache kit. I had #14 extracted at a dental school 2 hrs away from my home 5days ago so there was no easy way to go back there to have it examined. The tooth had had a root canal so it was a bugger to get out in pieces. My pain woke me up at night every night since the tooth was removed. I don't smoke but I am a mouth breather which I can control in the day but not at night so I think at night the tissue dries out which increases pain. Anyhow the homemade clove olive oil paste helped briefly but the 4:30 am run to walgreens and use of the Red Cross kit allowed me to sleep solidly. Wish the clinic had suggested this stuff.
