Pain Relief For Wisdom TeethPain relief for wisdom teeth can really help to manage the symptoms while you attend an emergency dental appointment.

Pain relief and emergency treatment in tandem is the best way to manage and then rectify issues with wisdom teeth. Sometimes patients are tempted to postpone emergency treatment if the pain has eased off. However, this will be due to the effects of the painkillers, not because the issue is abating. It is essential that you still see a dentist as soon as possible.

Pain Relief For Wisdom Teeth

  • Ibuprofen is one of the best options as far as over the counter medication is concerned. Ibuprofen helps to reduce inflammation around the wisdom tooth, therefore, helping to ease the pain and discomfort.
  • Avoid eating anything on the affected side as this can antagonise the inflammation. Furthermore, food can get trapped and cause infection.
  • Numbing gel from a pharmacy can be gently rubbed on the area (with a clean cotton bud) to help manage the pain.
  • Your dentist may also be able to prescribe a numbing mouthwash that you can rinse the area with to provide relief.
  • You could also apply a small ice pack to the affected cheek. Always wrap the pack in a cloth or tea towel to avoid damaging the skin.
  • Rinsing with salt water is a natural way of clearing away bacteria, alongside using clove oil (nature’s anaesthetic). Apply the clove oil by dabbing it around the inflammation with a clean cotton bud.
