I developed two dry sockets and was in extreme pain for over a week. They had me on vicodin and when that didn't work oxycodin which also didn't do much. I was getting less then 2 hours of sleep a night and was basicaly a mess.I ended up talking to a co-worker who specializes in home remedys and she told me to use gauze soaked in a 50/50 mix of clove oil and water and pack the socket. The relief was immediate and total. You'll have to switch it out once a day. It's amazing the difference and distressing that the dentists and doctors tend to keep this information from their patients. Good luck and take care!!
