I am finally on the list to have my wisdom teeth extracted. I have endured nearly 5 years of constant pain, infections, swelling, sleepless nights, throbbing, and all round agony! If you are in the same amount of pain as I am, it is an infection and will NOT go away without anti-biotic treatment. I had to fork out £90 yesterday to be seen and be prescribed, because it was a Sunday and my dentist isn't open on a Sunday. Great.
What the dentists tell you to do: Salt water rinses, a tea spoon of salt in boling water, cooled down to the temperature of hot tea, the hottest you can tolerate and swill around the infected area. This suppposedly brings the cells to the surface to help fight the infection.
Cold compress on the face, a bag of frozen peas, wrapped up ice cubes etc. This should reduce the swelling to your cheek and jaw.
Try sitting up right. I find when lying down the pain becomes more concentrated. Allow your jaw to hang a little loose, this should prevent you catching your teeth on anything already swollen, only making it worse.
Now for the medicines:
I use various things but not all at the same time (obviously)
Corsadyl, mouthwash/gel - I use the gel, a pea sized blob on the infected area, warning, it tastes like crap... I tend to gently cover with a piece of cotton wool to allow it to stay and stopping me from washing it away with my tongue. The mouthwash is equally as effective, it is better applied with a syringe, which I got given to me by my dentist so that I could be thorough in my cleaning. Warning, the mouthwash if used continuosly will stain your teeth. Corsadyl has a minor numbing effect, it helps but if the pain is quite extreme already, it will not get rid of it.
Painkillers: I use neurofen plus(or shops own brand), this is ibuprofen and codeine mixed together. It is strong enough for me, but I appreciate it might not be strong enough for others. It is an effective form of pain relief, but you can only take 6 in 24 hours, not great if like me the pain is ongoing through the day and night.
Paracetamol: using your standard shop bought 16p a pack stuff, and using it together with a pack of Ibuprofen, you can take these two together.
What was suggested to me by a nurse, instead of taking two of each every 4 hours, take 2 of one, and then two hours later take 2 of the other, alternating them, This way you are taking one of them every four hours, and taking the other every four hours, but covering any interim pain. And of course with these you can take 8 in a 24 hour stretch.

I am not a dentist or a doctor I am just repeating advice I have been given and things I do when I have dental pain... I will be so glad when these ******* teeth are out of my mouth for good.

for anyone having severe tootache and infection without going to dr. you can go to place who sells stuff to treat animals and fish aqauriums and tell them you need something for bacteria in fish tank they will show you several things but look on back the ingredients of some are amoxicillan and another is azithromiacin and they are capsules usually only 250mgs but to help humans you have to take 500mgs and take 500mgs 3 times a day i do this for my infection and always works its cheaper and alot faster than going to dr.s office.hope this helps you as much as its helped my entire family.


Acne scars an individual a lot more on the emoiaontl rather than the physical side. That is why folks are looking for natural acne cures. Did you know just by drinking water, old skin will be replaced by new skin faster, thus curing acne faster? I want to share a lot more knowledge but youtube wont let me put the link here, so I put it on my profile.
