I was planning to remove my upper left wisdom tooth last week. But the dentist was unavailable due to pandemic. I have taken an X-ray on my last visit and my dentist told me that it looks very awkward. I have a lot of pain at this moment as my wisdom tooth is halfway splitting into the side of my cheek. I am struggling to eat and clean my teeth. It is throbbing constantly and my face has swelling on one side. I can able to put only one finger in my mouth now. My mouth tastes blood and it bleeds a lot when I try to clean it. I have been prescribed antibiotics now. But I am very worried. I do not know when I am going to remove my tooth due to my restricted mouth opening. Please help.

I understand your concern. As your mouth opening is very low, do salt water gargling five to six times a day. It will help to relax your mouth opening. Continue taking antibiotics as prescribed. Have a gap of four to five days and then continue taking antibiotics for another five days. If there is still pain, you can take Paracetamol or Ibuprofen temporarily.
