Hello,I shall tell you two ointments that will work wonder for your dry socket problem,mix hexigel and mucopain ointments in equal quantities on the palm of your hand and apply it twice daily before meals on the area where you have got the extraction done.Leave it for some time and then you may rinse with plain water.Do this for few days.

Your healing seems normal. Dry socket causes severe pain . This is not dry socket. Please do warm salt water gargles and avoid hard and sharp things like chips etc

Dear mam Relax you dont have dry socket. Plz opt the following measures: 1) warm saline gargles 4 times a day . 2)5 ml betadine diluted in half cup of water gargles twice daily morning n before going to bed. 3)apply hexigel on the wound with an ear bud. Keep the wound area clean test all will fall in place. Regards Dr Shilpa khera Lilly white dental clinic .
