remedies for dry socket

I need a remedie for dry socket or aggervated nerve after having wisdom teeth taken out

Put cold packs on the outside of your face in the first 48 hours after extraction and warm packs after that, to help decrease pain and swelling.

Take pain medications as prescribed.

Avoid smoking or using tobacco products.

Drink plenty of clear liquids to remain hydrated and to prevent nausea that may be associated with some pain medications.

Rinse your mouth gently with warm salt water several times a day. To make salt water, mix 1/2 teaspoon of table salt in 8 ounces of water.

Brush your teeth gently around the dry socket area.

Avoid hard, chewy, hot or spicy foods that might get stuck in the socket or irritate the wound.
