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.
