Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all please do not worry. I went through your query and I am a specialist dealing with third molars. I can understand what kind of pain and discomfort you have been through. I will guide you to relieve all your pain. These teeth are impacted and they will not come out normally and will cause discomfort repeatedly.

I will prescribe better medicines kindly get them you will be fine. Visit your dentists office once the lockdown gets over to extraction. For now, I need you to do

Warm saline gargle two to three times a day (if hypertensive avoid salt, use Betadine gargle).

Avoid sticky or sweet food.

Maintain oral hygiene.

Avoid direct heat (warm cloths from outside).

Take the medications as prescribed.


The Probable causes:

Impacted third molars.

Probable diagnosis:

Pericoronitis.

Regarding follow up:

Follow up after seven days.
