Hello doctor,

I am a female, 18 years old, 5 feet. I weigh 50 kg. I am having a problem with my wisdom teeth. They are impacted and causing me a lot of pain.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand the pain you are experiencing due to impacted wisdom teeth. These teeth should be removed to alleviate the pain. They are removed by surgical procedure mostly under local anesthesia. Sometimes they are done under conscious sedation also. It would be great if you could send me the X-rays pictures. I could diagnose and let you know the difficulty in removal. For pain reduction, you can continue the same medication. Kindly rinse your mouth using salt in lukewarm water frequently around 4 to 5 times daily till the wisdom teeth are extracted.
