Hello dear
First of all sensodyne is not a painkiller toothpaste so please stop using it as painkiller.Your pain is mainly due to the pressure created by your wisdom tooth .It will subside temporarily by OTC available painkillers abd warm saline rinses.Finally you have to visit your dentist and got this wisdom tooth extracted.

First you should visit a dentist to identify the cause of the pain. if the pain is due to the eruption of the wisdom tooth it should be surgically removed by an Oral surgeon. Sometimes pain due to wisdom tooth gets referred to the Ear or one side of the head and is known as Referred Pain. Sensodyne tooth paste will not help as it is for reducing tooth sensitivity. Take warm saline gargle for 3-5 times a day and analgesics for pain relief.

Thanks for posting your query.
The pain,swelling and infection arise from impacted wisdom tooth which is erupting.
I would suggest you to get a thorough clinical as well as x-ray examination by a dentist.
The infection can be relieved temporarily using warm saline as well as betadine rinse.
The tooth has to be either removed or flap overlying tooth has to be removed to enhance tooth eruption.
Depending on the space available for tooth eruption treatment can be planned.
Rinse your mouth after every meals to prevent food lodgement.
The pain relieves usually after the treatment has performed.
Take medicines after consulting with your dentist.
Hope this helps.

Welcome to HCM

I would like to tell you that you are having pericoronitis that means inflammation of gums around impacted third molars due to food lodgement.
Pain can also be due to some remaining root stump of extracted tooth.

To rule out you need to consult your dentist & get an IOPAR done of associated tooth.
Also maintain proper oral hygiene & prevent any food lodgement in that region.

Take Care

Hello there ,

Thanks for writing your query,

Extraction of wisdom tooth often ends with complications like pain and swelling post extraction .
usually it takes 7 to 10 days for the extraction wound to heal and close completely provided if there is no infection .

After extraction antibiotic and analgesic coverage is must to prevent infection of the extraction site and to promote healing.

i would suggest you to start with a antibiotic and analgesic course consulting your dentist , which helps in subsiding the swelling and relives post extraction pain.

follow all the post extraction instructions and rinse the mouth with lukewarm saline or antiseptic mouth rinse.

i hope this helps ,

take care.

Thanks for asking the query,

Your symptoms suggest that you have developed inflammation of gums in the area due to poor oral hygiene, food accumulation.

I would suggest you to visit Dentist and get a checkup done.
There can be a chance of broken root piece left in the socket to rule out this take an x-ray of the region.
Go for symptomatic treatment of complete mouth scaling and polishing.

Take a course of antibiotics and analgesics.
Use chlorhexidine mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.

Thanks for your query.
I read your problem,first of all i would like to tell you that impacted wisdom tooth is always painful.
You did not mentioned after removal of its front tooth whether this wisdom tooth has been erupted or not?
If not, i would like to suggest you please visit to an oral surgeon and go for the removal of this wisdom tooth.
Meanwhile maintain good oral hygiene,you can use betadine mouth wash/warm saline gargles and rise your mouth after each meal.
Take Care.

hi there
thanks for asking your query

Sometimes the wisdom tooth fails to erupt completely through the gum bed and the gum at the back of the wisdom tooth extends over the biting surface, forming a soft tissue flap or lid around the tooth called an operculum.
food impaction in this area leads to local inflamation causing pain and irritation

partially erupted and mal aligned third molar are usually extracted

consult a dentist and go for its extraction
meanwhlie take synflex 550mg as apain reliever
gargle with saline water
maintin good oral hygiene
hope this will help
