I had my very back bottom tooth extracted 2 weeks ago (this Thursday will be 3 weeks) and it still hurts. I came to this site after about a week of the pain of the 'dry socket' and it was AMAZING. I took the advice of the many & went and got the Red Cross Toothache Kit from Walgreens for roughly $7.00. WHAT A LIFE SAVER!! You all are the best!! I wouldn't have known what to do because my dentist wanted to re-numb my gums & scrae the bone to create another blood clot but that just didn't sound appealing to me, nor could I afford the procedure after shelling out the money to have the extraction to begin with. So... I went looking for alternative treatments & found this awesome site. I have been using the clove oil 'eugenol' for almost 2 weeks & it does provide the relief I need to get thru the day & sleep thru the night. At first, I was soaking gauze in it and stuffing it in there and leaving it for about 24 hours. Now, I am only putting a couple drops in it and it's lasting about 6 hours before I have to reapply. I'm hoping that since I'm nearing the 3 week mark, the pain/uncomfortable feeling will GO AWAY completely & I can put this awful experience behind me! This is the WORST pain I've ever been in and I've had 3 kids!! Thanks again for all the wonderful advice. You guys helped me ALOT!!
