Default Dry socket nightmare ... advice needed ! X

Hi everyone
Iím from Devon in the uk and going through a dental nightmare atm.
On 18th jan I had an xray on a bottom back molar due to intense pain and found out it was cracked so i was injected 5 times in gum with anaesthetic and the tooth was dressed
3 days later I was in agony and I couldnít open my jaw more than 1 cm without extreme pain.
I returned to dentist Monday 25th and the tooth was extracted .
2 days later on Wednesday I was sobbing with the pain and still couldnít open my mouth
The dentist said I had dry socket and cleaned it out and packed it with a dressing
2 days later on Friday throbbing worse canít sleep going outta my mind in pain despite taking paracetamol and ibuprofen constantly

Back to dentist for 4th time now
Another 5 injections clean out and socket dressed again

Itís now Sunday the dressing is starting to fall out
What do I do ?
Can I just let this happen and try and treat it with clove oil ?

I canít face the dentist again and I still canít move my jaw wider than 1cm ... this is really worrying me !

Will it heal quicker without the dressing ? As in does the dressing slow down the process ?

I would rather have a couple days climbing up the wall with pain than waiting weeks for this to go

Sorry for such a long post ... I am really desperate !
Stay safe everyone over there .. the uk is not going well with this virus 😢

Xxx Katrina

Welcome Katrina888. Someone will be along. A dry socket isn't fun for sure. I had one once.

Hi

I'm sorry to hear the pain you are in. I have dealt with a dry socket and its no fun. I would remove the dressing. I actually removed it a few hours after having a tooth pulled. What caused my dry socket is smoking.
After having a second tooth extracted I learned from the first time. I had to make sure I kept that area moist drinking fluids. I actually drank a bunch of apple juice and would let it sit on that side for 15 seconds before swallowing it. I made sure not to use aby drinking straws. I hope it gets better for you soon.

Best wishes,

Diamond Tiger<3
