Wisdom Tooth Pain: Wisdom Teeth that are symptomatic should be removed. Probably a good idea to consult with an oral surgeon.

See Dentist: A Dentist can diagnose and direct treatment for wisdom tooth problems such as decay, damage to adjacent tooth, pericoronitis (inflamed gums), gum disease, fracture, etc. until you can get to your Dentist for the care you need, take OTC analgesics exactly as directed on the package. Go see a Dentist and get it fixed.

See a dentist: Wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 16 and 25. If you are experiencing pain, swollen lymph nodes and it does not go away or if you find it difficult to open your mouth, you should see a dentist for evaluation, x-ray and wisdom teeth removal.

See your dentist: Warm salt water rinses and meds like tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil may help a bit but you should be evaluated by your dentist.
