Riding the devil of Wisdom Tooth Pain in London SE1

22 / 01 / 2012

You were too young to remember when your teeth first came through in London SE1, but if you watch a baby crying when going through this period, you will get the idea roughly, of what you could be in for when your wisdom teeth start to surface. Okay, that is a slight exaggeration on the theme, but wisdom teeth can be extremely painful. They are also very unpredictable as they can grow in all directions and in some cases, the only way to stop the pain is to have them removed altogether. But if they are growing straight and true, you may only have to endure the time it takes for them to erupt, some people are lucky enough to have hardly any pain at all. Generally, painkillers are the best way of soothing the pain but there are other techniques as well. Clove oil rubbed onto the gums tends to cool the inflamed area down, while anesthetic gels can also sooth the pain. Ice packs on the cheeks also help during this time but you can also speed up the eruption by chewing on the affected area. If the pain is unbearable, however, and especially if it continues once the tooth has come through, you will need to seek professional advice from your dentist. It is a serious and possibly dangerous time so you need to be prepared for every eventuality to arise.
