9 days after getting a Wisdom Toof removed, my jaw still aches periodically, so I am keeping up with the Salt Water bath idea. Another dentist in Auckland inserted a dressing to deal with the "Dry Socket Syndrome" which developed.
It was deeply impacted, and broke into 3 pieces while being removed. Much of it had been hidden by my gum, so X-rays did not show the decay which had been slowly working away for 38 years.
I'm glad to be rid of that problem tooth, but sincerely hope that none of the other 3 have to be removed, because it's not something I'm keen to go through again.
