Wisdom tooth wisdom: you might want to see your Dentist or Orthodontist for removal of the problematic wisdom tooth/teeth. In the meantime, you can use cold pack to your jaw ( TMJ area) and use over the counter pain meds ( ibuprofen or paracetamol). Always take ibuprofen with food and avoid if you have kidney disease or stomach problems.

Wisdom tooth: If you have a bacterial infection antibiotics will keep the infection from spreading to her organ systems for as long as you keep taking the meds, but will probably recur once you stop taking the pills. Please see your General Dentist to oversee your treatment. Referral to a specialist Oral Surgeon, a wisdom tooth expert, for appropriate care.
