How to Stop Wisdom Tooth Swelling

  posted by: Gretchen



Wisdom Tooth SwellingWhen your wisdom tooth comes out, it is usually very painful. It causes so much discomfort and inflammation. Once it gets swollen, you will suffer from pain even more. The pain is as throbbing as a dry socket after extraction. Many people have tried seeing a dentist for surgical extraction of impacted wisdom teeth which if left untreated can lead to infection, inflammation, and extreme pain.  In order to find out whether your wisdom teeth are impacted, you need to pay your dentist a visit for an x-ray check-up of your teeth.

What are the Symptoms?

  • Swelling, also called edema and redness
  • Tender and painful sums and jaw
  • Headaches
  • Bad breath
  • A nasty taste in the mouth when you bite in the area of the wisdom teeth
  • Difficulty opening the mouth
  • Difficulty eating


Home Remedies

  • Take a glass of water and add few drops of plantago mother tincture in water and then gargle the solution for up to three times a day.
  • Drops of clove oil can also help.  Pour a few drops of this oil on a cotton ball then put the cotton over the swollen gum.  It will soothe the pain.
  • Rinse your mouth after eating to prevent the food particles to be stuck in between the teeth and the gums.
  • Use soft toothbrush to avoid irritating or hurting the swollen gums. Hard bristles of brush could also lead to bleeding.
  • Pour a pinch of salt on a glass of lukewarm water and use it to gargle. This will lessen the pain.
  • You can also take Paracetamol or Aspirin to relieve the pain and discomfort.

If the tooth has been affected badly, a root canal may be the answer to avoid more serious problems.  If you need molar teeth removal, it is best to see a dentist for a professional advice.  Never mind the cost as it will be worth the result.
