Back in 2010 was my first visit to Aspen. I had to have a tooth pulled (could not afford the root canal I needed). When the dentist pulled it, the force of it coming out smacked into the tooth above it causing it to fracture. I then had to have that one removed as well. Several days later I ended up with dry socket, then days after that, dry socket in both spots. Extremely painful, each time I came back over the course of several weeks I was given prescription pain meds, none of them helped.
I finally found a "natural remedy" online on my own. 99 cents and a bottle of clove oil later my pain was gone instantly. I then went to an oral surgeon who told me I did what they should have done for me which was to pack the tooth socket in eugenol (clove oil).
As a result of one of the pain meds (vicoprophen) I lost my hearing suddenly in one ear, permanently. I don't know why they didn't attend to my dry socket situation they way they should have, I think it was cruel and needless to say I am not pleased with this practice overall.
