Treats Dry Socket
Dry socket is a complication of tooth removal, and clove oil can be used to soothe the pain and prevent infections from developing or worsening. The oil’s anesthetic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties contribute to its effectiveness in treating this condition. Clove oil’s effectiveness for dental issues like dry socket is well-known, and it’s an ingredient of many dry socket pastes. Clove oil treats dry socket in the form of a dressing made from the oil and a piece of cotton or sterile gauze. Patients only need to add a drop or two of the oil to the cotton or gauze for quick pain relief. Apply it to the area after gently rinsing the socket with warm salt water. Side effects of using clove oil to treat dry socket include swollen gums, sore gums, or skin irritation. The size of the dressing is important. It should be large enough to keep food out, but it has to fit properly in the socket for long periods without becoming compressed.
