Hi,
Welcome to the forum.
Over-the-counter analgesics are common for treatment of wisdom tooth pain.
Clove oil can also be used with a pinch of pepper powder and one quarter teaspoon of rock salt to make a paste to be applied directly to the painful tooth or gum.
Chewing garlic or onions is thought to be good for teeth.
The gentle massaging of the cheek and the application of ice to the jaw can also help manage wisdom tooth pain.
I hope this is helpful to you.

hello and welcome to HCM forum,
I would like to inform you that jaw pain is most probably from an erupting wisdom tooth ,
sometimes due to lack of space in the jaw, your wisdom molar is not able to erupt, it pushes the adjacent tissues which results in pain and pressure.
Pain may or may not be associated with swelling, in order to treat this condition you will have to see an oral surgeon.
Pain killers will not be of much help in this case.
until you see your dentist, kindly follow these instructions;
1. warm saline rinses(3-4 times/day),
2. mild pain killer(every 8 hours)only,
3 antibacterial mouth rinse(twice/day).
i hope i answered your query,
kindly see your dentist soon,
i wish you good health,
take care.

Hi,
Thank you for the query.
Erupting wisdom teeth is usually associated with discomfort when there is lack of space for the teeth to erupt into the oral cavity.
Infection in the teeth could be the cause for the pain , soo get an x-ray done and rule out whether the teeth is in a position to erupt or has required space to erupt .
I would advise you to take keterol-dt 2 tablets first and followed by one tablet for every 8 hrs if you have pain. This can be followed by warm salt water rinses and maintain good oral hygiene.
You need to see your dentist as early as you can .
Hope your query is answered.

dear friend,
thanx for sharing your concern,

jaw pain is most commonly from an erupting wisdom tooth.

sometimes due to lack of space in the jaw, your wisdom molar is not able to erupt, it pushes the adjacent tissues which results in pain and pressure also due to in adequate space, it takes alternate pathway (horinzontaly , mesioangular, distuangular).

Pain may or may not be associated with swelling, in order to treat this condition you will have to see your dentist preferably oral surgeon.

Pain killers will not be of much help in this case.

meanwhile do warm saline rinses, mild pain killer every six hours only, antibacterial mouth rinse.

As this area is difficult to clean , there are more chances of infection due to food lodgement.

So i suggest you to maintain good oral hygiene, keep the area clean by brushing ,flossing and mouth rinsing to prevent infection.

For pain relief you can start with Aceclofenac serratiopeptidase 2 times daily .

Get an OPG radiograph done , which will show the position of tooth in relation to jaw bone and adjacent teeth, if it is impacted surgical removal of tooth will be appreciated the most.

i hope this helps,
thanx

Hi and welcome,
Wisdom tooth is the last tooth to erupt in the oral cavity and so its eruption is often associated with pain and discomfort.Reasons for jaw pain is , in most of the cases the tooth does not find enough space in the oral cavity to erupt so it gets impacted in the jaw bone leading to pressure on the jaw and the adjacent teeth that leads to pain. As this area is difficult to clean , there are more chances of infection due to food lodgement. So i suggest you to maintain good oral hygiene, keep the area clean by brushing .flossing and mouth rinsing to prevent infection.
For pain relief to can start with Aceclofenac serratiopeptidase 2 times daily till you see a dentist.
Get an OPG radiograph done , which will show the position of tooth in relation to jaw bone and adjacent teeth, if it is impacted surgical removal of tooth will be the best treatment.
take care.
