Will a dry socket heal with only one packing? I went to ER (my dr out of town) ER dr said hole is closed there's nothing for him to pack...Help!
Dry socket: Actually, a dry socket will heal even without any packing. It will just be painful and take much, much longer to heal. Although a physician in an emergency room is not quite the same as a dentist for a dental evaluation, if you are substantially out of pain, there is no need to repack the socket. You should still see your dentist for a follow up evaluation just to make sure all is ok. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Long time: Dry socket occurs when the blood clot that is supposed to form and seal the hole from an extraction comes out. The extraction site is therefore unable to heal. Go see your dentist because they can clean out the dry socket, re stimulate bleeding and there will be relief almost immediately. ...Read more
Depends: That depends on how large the bone defect (where the tooth was) is, how many days after the surgery it developed, and what contributing oral habits (such as smoking) you have. With treatment, they can heal pretty quickly, usually within a couple of weeks. If you don't see a dentist, they can linger for several weeks. So, see your dentist/oral surgeon and get the dry socket treated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dry Sockets: Dry sockets can be very painful, lasting a few weeks. If you suspect a dry socket. You should contact the doctor that did the extractions and hopefully have the areas packed to get some relief, otherwise you will be trying to kill the pain with pain meds that are likely not to help too much. Once healed, you should be fine, but it can take some time, up to a week or two. ...Read more
Once they put it in, you will have almost instant relief. It will taste horrible, but you won't be in pain. It improves the healing time and within a few days it should be relatively healed up and after a few weeks you won't know anything was even done there. The medication just aides the natural healing process.

Flying with a dry socket does it cause any harm or make it worse, also will it ever heal as it has been 6 days, please advice!!! : (?
Dry socket: Flying with a dry socket should have no effect, either way. Most dry sockets heal even without treatment, unless of course it is or does become infected. This is not something that you can determine on your own. I suggest you see a dentist to confirm that there is no infection or other complication to healing. Why suffer? As dry sockets are easily & quickly remedied with proper treatment. See DDS! ...Read more
