    If you are having pain in your teeth, then you must visit the dentist. You can take a non steroidal anti-inflammatory(NSAID) such as aspirin or ibuprofen to ease the discomfort. Sometimes these over-the-counter medications aren’t enough to relieve the pain. When that’s the case, your doctor may prescribe a stronger drug or give you a nerve block.
    Your dentist will clean the tooth socket, removing any debris from the hole, and then fill the socket with a medicated dressing or a special paste to promote healing. You’ll probably have to come back to the dentist’s office every day for a dressing change until the socket starts to heal and your pain lessens.
    Your dentist may prescribe antibiotics to prevent the socket from becoming infected. To care for the dry socket at home, your dentist may recommend that you rinse with salt water or a special mouthwash every day.
    Your dentist will wait until the dry socket has healed — which can take up to two weeks — before placing dental implants.
    So, take care. All the best.
