Hello doctor,

The gums where my wisdom tooth is present is in pain.

Dr. Tooba Qazi



Welcome to icliniq.com.

What is your age? Wisdom tooth gets erupted in ages between 19 to 30. They put eruption pressure after every three weeks or so. If its position is not vertical or they are tilted or are impacted in bone, they start causing severe pain. For it the first line of treatment is taking medications. This will subside eruption pain.

The second line of treatment is if it is not getting better with medicines you should get it extracted so that it may not bother surrounding tissues and tooth. Meanwhile, take tablet Brufen 400 mg eight hourly for three days. Give me followup after three days. If pain will persist, then you will be prescribed antibiotics. Stay happy and blessed.
