  • I recommend you to visit your dentist. Though after 3 weeks of time, there are quite few chances of dry socket but still you require a thorough examination. 

    Till that time you do warm saline gargles 2-3 times daily and maitain a proper hygiene...Take a small cotton ball, let it soak up with some clove oil and  put it in the socket.This will give you instant relief...For more info on dry socket pain you can visit the link...http://www.identalhub.com/dental-what-is-dry-socket-879.aspx
