Ten years later, wisdom tooth infected

Had all for wisdom teeth pulled while in military. The bottom left side of my neck ballooned and they threw me on a table, strapped my arms, put a sheet over my head, and I don't remember anything after that. They told me a piece of bone was stuck in my vein and could have killed me... Great, now to the real reason I'm posting here.

My top left wisdom tooth socket becomes infected about once every 4-6 months ever since the removal which was about ten years ago. The infection consists of a feeling of pressure where the tooth was, sore spot on roof of mouth, I become extremely tired for a couple days, and inevitably it end with a massive amount of disgusting amount of drainage coming from the original hole from the wisdom tooth. Do they not sew up the holes normally?

Anyone have this problem and any advice to take care of this without going to dentist? As you may have gathered, I no longer trust these med school underachievers.
