Treatment:: local treatment ( dressing) or packing the socket) can be provided by a dentist, and a general medication such as antibiotics can help with the infection.but best medication is prevention, allow a proper blood clot the time to form before rinsing or eating on the side, no smoking for a few days after the extraction and especially if you have already Ardy socket.
