I have an unbearable pain and a swelling in my gums on the Lower Jaw around the Wisdom Tooth area. Please advice an immediate pain reliever.

Possibly sounds

Dentist
Like pericoronitis. Recommend seeing a dentist or oral surgeon as soon as possible. In the interim 3-4 advils every 6-8 hours, peroxide-water warm rinse 4x/day. Topical anesthetic (orajel) type might also help. Feel better. All the best.

Will temporary crown on wisdom tooth gum cause swelling before removal?

Depends

Head-teeth
Depends on how carefully the temporary was made. Properly made temporary crowns shouldn't cause swelling. You should see your dentist - there might be a problem with the nerve in the tooth.

What can be done for Swelling of the gums where a wisdom tooth is pushing through?

Complaint with wisdom teeth is exactly what you are describing. In essence you are "Teething" and you now understand why baby's cry! Warm salt water rinse is good. Antibiotic is better. Getting the tooth evaluated and possibly removed is best. Good luck!!!

all depends on cause of infection, position of tooth and how soon you will have it removed. antibiotics are a temporary fix to reduce swelling enough to remove tooth

I just had my lower wisdom tooth extracted last night,it took 30 minutes for my dentist to remove.Now my gums is swelling what will i do?

Dry socket

Time is a healer , you have to follow your doctor post op instructions , hope you have one , take your anti biotic and the Motrin 600-800 mg if you are not already on it, rinses start with warm salt water three to four times daily , avoid chewing on that side , the possibilities of dry socket is high . If pain persist go back and see your dentists

My gums/leftcheek is swollen! I have decay wisdom tooth and the dentist doesn't want to remove it cuz itstill swelling. How many days does it last?

Depends

Ankle_sprain
If you're on antibiotics to control the swelling, can be a few days to a week. If not on antibiotics, find a different Dentist. The infection cannot be resolved until the tooth is out.

Would a wisdom tooth breaking through the gum make your tonsil swell and your ear to itch?

Tooth breaking gum

Head-teeth
The eruption of a posterior (rear) tooth can cause general malaise, a fever up to 100 degrees and soreness in the tonsillar pillars. Itching of the ear is not a common sequella of tooth eruption.

Wisdom tooth is causing my cheek and gum areas to swell, and it hurts to open my mouth. appointment not for 3 days. Anything that can help till then?

OTC meds

Acetaminophen
Alternate 600 mg. of ibuprofen with 2 Tylenol each 3 hours. Apply cold packs if that helps and hopefully you should be able to be seen early in the week. If that isn't doing the trick, en emergency room will have stronger pain meds available.

I'm suffering frm swollen gums around my wisdom tooth,earache,headache. Please help?

Infection

137110504
This sound like an infection around a partially erupted wisdom tooth, or pericornitis. You need to see a dentist, or oral surgeon regarding extraction. In the meanwhile keep it as clean as you can, rinse with warm salt water, take ibuprophen if you can tolerate this medication. Your dentist can prescribe an antibiotic.
