...: Always floss and brush your teeth before bed. For acute pain you can take Ibuprofen if you are not allergic to it. See your dentist for an evaluation and treatment recommendation.

Wisdom teeth: Sometimes wisdom teeth are valuable asset when healthy and properly aligned, but more often, they are misaligned and require removal. Take NSAIDs and Tylenol (acetaminophen) OTC for pain control and see your dentist for evaluation and x-rays.
