Hello doctor,

I believe that my wisdom teeth are coming through, but I have other symptoms as listed; I also suspect that my smoking may have caused further problems with my gums.



Welcome to

You have said your wisdom tooth is out. If so, you have a generalized inflammation of the gums or localized gum inflammation near the wisdom teeth. If you have a generalized gum inflammation with mouth ulcers all over your soft mucosa, it is in no way related to wisdom teeth. You have mentioned you have a fever too. Then we have to think of a general issue and take a complete blood examination and see if you have any infection or an infectious condition. You are taking tablet Ibuprofen, I would suggest you take a multivitamin along with an antibiotic.

  1. Tablet Novamox (Amoxycillin) 500 mg twice a day, morning and night for three days.
  2. Tablet Flagyl (Metronidazole) 400 mg three times a day for three days.
  3. Capsule Becosule (vitamin B complex and C) once daily for ten days.
  4. Tablet Ibuprofen twice a day for three days.

Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with them and take medicines with their consent.
