Thanks for using ' Just Answer ' and i would be glad to assist you.

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble.

Though i would really recommend to visit your dentist at the earliest for the same, however i would be able to provide additional inputs to the question posted.

You could use clove oil to reduce the dry socket pain. Dilute the oil as it is strong and can sting. You can find clove oil in most natural food stores and in some pharmacies.I usually recommend to use a q tip to rub on the gums around the socket.I do not recommend putting it in the hole.

Rinse your mouth out gently with warm or hot salt water several times a time. Like the syringe method, this removes debris and food particles. The salt also draws fluid to the area, which will promote healing.

An effective way to control dental pain is to switch between 400 mgs of Ibuprofen ( 2 tab of advil ) and 1000 mgs of acetaminophen ( Tylenol ) every 4 - 6 hours.

Unfortunately, there are not much options you have rather than looking to re visit your local dentist.

Any Further Questions, Revert and i would be glad to Answer.
