Natural pain remedy for dry socket

I had a tooth extracted. Now it’s two days later and I’m pretty sure I have dry socket.  I’m looking for a natural (holistic) pain solution. Will clove oil work?

Danielle,

Clove oil is a decent pain reliever and would be safe to use.  It would be a good holistic solution. However, I do have a concern.  I know you’re sure that the problem is dry socket, but I’d feel better if you saw a dentist and made certain that is the reason for your pain. I’d hate for there to be another underlying issue that is being overlooked. If there is, it will only get worse.

If you’d like, there are some holistic dentists around. I’m sure you can find one somewhere near you in Pennsylvania. They’ll work with you to make sure whatever treatment is required will be natural.
