Hello doctor,

I had pain in my second molar. I felt the pain in my wisdom tooth last week then the pain fades away after 3-5 minutes. I thought it will not come back but then it happens recently then the gums in my second right molar teeth have the red lining and it always hurts when I eat or drink and even when I do toothbrush. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query. I am sorry for your inconvenience with the tooth. As an expert in this field, I know what is exactly wrong. Nothing to worry it is your third molar.

What happens during erupting third molars or partially erupted third molars is the gum between the second and the third molars undergo swelling and pain due to infection. It also makes mouth opening difficult in some cases. But not to worry. Kindly upload an image if possible for more help.

Follow these instructions:

- Do warm saline gargle two to three times a day.

- Take tablet Sporidex (Cephalexin) 500 mg one tablet BD for five days, Zerodol SP (Aceclofenac, Serratiopeptidase, and Paracetamol) one tablet BD for five days, capsule Pan D (Pantoprazole) one capsule BD before meals for five days.

These medications will help you a lot. You will be fine.


The Probable causes:

Erupting third molar.

Probable diagnosis:

Pericoronitis.

Preventive measures:

Avoid sticky or sweet or cold items, not even cold water.

Regarding follow up:

Follow up after seven days.
