Hi doctor,

The two teeth in the back of the lower jaw, one on each side, have chipped over the years. And now I believe the nerves are exposed, hurting so much. I am 16 years old, and I have no parents or insurance. In addition I am taking Ibuprofen. So my question is, is there a remedy to make the pain go away? Please help, as it keeps me awake at night and has been giving me horrible migraines, affecting my classes.

Please help.



Welcome to

I went through your query and understood your concern.

As I can see, they are not chipped; they are broken badly (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity). They are exposed, and it cannot be treated with a home remedy because the infection will remain the same as now. So, I suggest you to visit a dentist and get an X-ray done. As far as a home remedy is concerned, you can rinse your mouth with warm salt water (salt mixed in lukewarm water).

I also suggest using Colgate pain-out gel (eugenol, camphor, and menthol). In addition, take the tablet Ketorol-DT (Ketorolac Tromethamine) once a day by dissolving one tablet in two spoons of water.

Also, brush your teeth twice a day and use mouthwash after brushing.

I hope this was helpful.

Kindly update me about the improvements.
