Hello doctor.

My sister has severe pain in her wisdom tooth. She has her final exams soon. Please suggest medicine for the same. She is taking some home remedy, but it is not effective for more than three hours. Kindly help.



Welcome to

Ask your sister to maintain oral hygiene and use mouthwash after brushing twice daily. Rinse mouth with salt water and turmeric mixture twice a day. Use only lukewarm water while rinsing your mouth. Take tablet Ketorol - DT (Ketorolac tromethamine)10 mg, to reduce pain if it still persists after home remedy. Dissolve one tablet in two spoons of water and drink.

Thank you.
