Q.

Painful tooth extraction

What can she use because the gum is so painful and she was not prescribed anything from the dentist. She is using some pain killers but it is still not helping her and she doesn't sleep properly at night through this pain

You could be having a post extraction infection. Return to the dentist to have it checked. You may need a dressing in the socket.
