Hi doctor,

I am having major pain in the back bottom right side of my mouth where my wisdom tooth is pushing in. I can see the wisdom tooth. What can I do for pain since the earliest my dentist can see me is in a week?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I had gone through your question I can understand your concern.

You need to use Hydrogen peroxidase 3% mouth wash. Make sure the concentration must not be more than that. You can also use antibiotics only after consulting your dentist.

You can also provide further details of your medical history or any drug allergy, including the pictures of erupting tooth so that I can offer you a better opinion and treatment plan.


The Probable causes:

Wisdom tooth eruption.

Investigations to be done:

IOPAR x-ray.

Differential diagnosis:

Impaction.

Probable diagnosis:

Pericoronitis.

Treatment plan:

Mouth wash and antibiotics.

Preventive measures:

Avoid sticky foods.
