dry socket packing

Post by bam56 » Thu Aug 24, 2017 11:49 am

dentist put a packing in dry socket, 1 week ago.. area was feeling better, no mention of coming back to have it removed. should i try to pull it out as its now been exactly 1 week? last night, area started throbbing a little. i don't want the packing to start a new infection, i rinse multiple times throughout the day with salt water and or listerine. next dentist appt isn't until 5 days from now. I'd rather take packing out myself and treat with googled home remedies, then to go through another needle stuck in the dry socket and re-packed.
