Clove oil: If you can't get in to a dentist, try cleaning it out and then using a bit of clove oil. Having osteoporosis really doesn't make any difference when it comes to how we treat a dry socket.

Go back to dentist: If you had a tooth removed and you are having discomfort from a dry socket then go see your dentist or oral surgeon. If you are a female on osteoporosis medicines...Then definitely go back to the doctor. That particular scenario has its own problems. Don't delay.
