Wisdom Tooth Pain
Wisdom teeth are located in the very back of your mouth. They’re often positioned in a way that renders them unable to grow and become impacted in your gum. This can lead to infection and severe pain, making it necessary that the tooth be extracted.
This is a very serious situation and requires immediate attention from a dentist. For short-term relief, you can take over-the-counter pain medicine like Tylenol or Advil. It also helps to rinse your mouth with a blend of 8 ounces of warm water and ½ teaspoon of salt every few hours. This helps relieve inflammation. In some cases, an antibiotic may need to be prescribed to prevent infection.
