Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Wisdom tooth eruption will occur periodically. You will feel pain and pressure in months. For relief, you may take tablet Brufen 400 mg twice a day for three days. Put oral gel Clinica (Chlorhexidine with Metronidazole) three to four times a day for a week in that particular area. And lastly that is most important, do saline water mouthrinses three times a day for two weeks. It will relieve the soreness of gum areas. Take a 1/4th teaspoon of salt in a cup of lukewarm water and do its rinses.
