This is the first time I've had dry socket. I found that the Red Cross toothache kit with the eugenol worked best for the pain. Am still on painkillers also, but this helps to not take as many of them. My lower molar was pulled a week ago and I followed all recommended procedures to avoid dry socket and I don't smoke. I went back to the dentist and they medicated it and prescribed antibiotics. I think the toothache kit works better than their medicated dressing, plus I don't want to keep going back to the dentist.

Thank you very much for this remedy. I have been miserable for a week until I purchased and used the Red Cross toothache solution. I'm going to bed now!


I've suffered dry socket for a week now following a lower impacted wisdom tooth extraction with the same pain and symptoms as you, including antibiotics for infection. Now my prescriptions have run out and OTC pain relief having little effect. After reading stuff online, I've tried the home remedy of clove oil on gauze packed into the hole after rinsing with Sally water. Amazing and instant pain relief. My advice to anyone else is just do it!!


Lol!!! SALT water.......I don't have any special water named after me!!!

Thank you so much for the advise. The pain was awful and now I can finally sleep. Today is the 6th day after I had the surgery to remove my wisdom tooth, I was fine the first day of the surgery but the pain started the second day. The pain killers stopped working and I didn't know what to do. I couldn't go back to see the dentist but I called her and her only advise was 'rinse your mouth with warm water and baking soda' . So I started looking for some remedies over the Internet and after doing a Lot of research I found out that clove its great to treat this problem. I still have pain but its not as bad as it was before. I don't know if I have a dry socket or not all I know is I couldn't stand the pain and eugenol really did the trick! Now I'm able to sleep!
