I used sea salt soaks on my pulled tooth with great results. You want to get the non iodine sea salt. Mix it in some warm water till it tastes like tears. (pretty weak) Then use it to gently swish around the hole. You can also hold it on the hole. Do not swollow. You can also rinse with some water after if you like. Be sure that you don't use a straw to drink with for a few days. This is what caused mine to start to get infected, but the sea salt cleared it right up.
