We have all known somebody or have had a personal experience with wisdom teeth pain. It can be an excruciating problem, with many of us not having space in our mouths to accommodate emerging wisdom teeth. In this situation a wisdom tooth can get stuck against another tooth and grow at an angle under the gum, which is called an impacted wisdom tooth.

 

Of course the most obvious course of action is to contact a dentist or an oral surgeon to make an appointment, but in the meantime here are some simple ways to help relieve pain and swelling at home.

 

An ice pack held on the outside of the cheek (or cheeks if you are especially unlucky!) where the pain is occurring can be beneficial. Simply purchase an ice pack from your local chemist, or wrap a pack of frozen vegetables or some ice in a tea towel and apply for 20 minutes, remove for the same amount of time and repeat as needed. This will help to reduce swelling and numb the pain caused by your wisdom teeth.

 

Rinsing your mouth out with warm salt water throughout the day can also bring relief when dealing with wisdom teeth pain. Salt water helps by killing bacteria and reducing inflammation. If the pain is not too bad, rinse with salt water 1-2 times per day, or if you are really struggling with bad pain rinse every 2-3 hours. Just dissolve half a teaspoon of salt in 250ml of warm water for each rinse.

 

You can also try an over-the-counter medicine to help relieve pain, such as Bonjela teething gel, ibuprofen or aspirin.

 

At the end of the day all of these options will help with wisdom teeth pain, but are only short-term solutions that treat the symptoms but don’t completely resolve the issue. It is important that if you start to experience any pain from emerging wisdom teeth that you speak to a dentist or an oral surgeon. If you are in the Sydney area, contact The Wisdom Teeth Professionals for a reputable and professional oral surgeon in Sydney who will advise you if extraction is necessary. Don’t keep living with the pain and risking further complications!
