Brief Answer: pain might be because of your wisdom tooth Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, Thanks for writing in. First of all i would like to tell you that,wisdom teeth are vestigial organ as they play little role in chewing/mastication and if they do not have sufficient space in the mouth to come out they will cause pain and recurrent infection in the relevant area which will lead underlying bone destruction gradually. So i will suggest you go for extraction of your wisdom tooth. Mean while you can follow following instruction to get relief- 1. Perform warm saline rinses 3-4 times a day. 2.Maintain good oral hygiene. 3.Rinse your mouth properly after each meal. 4.Brush your teeth twice daily. 5.You can use betadine mouth rinses. Hope this will be helpful. If you have further any query,i will be happy to help you. Take Care. Dr. Gunjan Gupta
