Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

Combiflam can be definitely taken for pain relief in case pain due to erupting third molars.

Other analgesics are ibuprofen and diclofenac.but pain killers gives temporary relief.

For permanent cure x ray is required.This is to to judge the availability of space in the jaw for eruption of third molar.

Therefore, i would advise for a clinical evaluation by your dentist.

Meanwhile warm sine rinses might help to localize the infection.

Further,on consultation suitable antibiotic can be sarted along with analgesics.

Hope it helps.

Thanks.

Take care.

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
Commonly used wisdom teeth medication include those drugs which belong to the class of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs. These drugs can be availed over-the-counter and through prescription. Aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and ketoprofen are some commonly administered medication. Also, tylenol 3, vicodine and percocet are some other medications which are also known to provide some relief. But one aspect which has to be kept in mind is that the nature of the pain may differ from person to person.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
Regards.

Hi,
You should consult your dentist and get an OPG xray done. The dentist can identify the position of the tooth and can advise if it requires removal or not. Warm saline gargle three to four times a day is of relief and take Tab Dolonex DT for pain relief. Surgical removal of wisdom tooth should be done at the earliest.
Take care,

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

Wisdom tooth is the last tooth to errupt in the oral cavity and often associated with pain and swelling during its erruption.

I would suggest you to take tab Amoxiclav 625mg and tab Aceclofenac twice for 3-5 days for pain,
Visit to the Dentist and get the checkup done, take an x-ray to look if the tooth is impacted.

Maintain a good oral hygiene, avoid food lodgement in the area as it results in inflammation of the overlying gums known as PERICORONITIS.
Use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.

Regards...

Hello,
Thanks for writing in.
ITs common to have pain,swelling,fever,headache associated with wisdom tooth eruption.
The pain killers can only relieve pain temporarily.
Please do visit a dentist and get a thorough clinical as well as x-ray check-up done.
Depending on the position of wisdom tooth erupting and space available for tooth eruption,get the tooth removed or flap overlying tooth has to be removed to enhance tooth eruption.
Meanwhile frequent warm saline gargle can be done.
Irrigate the area using betadine and sodium hypochlorite solution.
Maintain good oral hygiene too.
Hope this helps.

Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
Yes it does. Homeopathic remedy MAG CARB 200 * 1 or 2 doses , are very helpful. If they do not help, see a dentist and get it examined. Wisdom tooth eruption is always painful, gum massage will help reduce swelling. Warm water gargles, 2-3 times a day to keep mouth clean, take plenty of water to avoid dryness.
Takecare.
