In brief: Saltwater rinse

Rinse with warm salt water as often as possible and take some antiinflamatory over the counter medication like advil (ibuprofen).

In brief: Ibuprofen & Tylenol (acetaminophen)

600mg Ibuprofen with 1000mg tylenol (acetaminophen) every 8 hours and drink lots of water. This will make it easier for the dentist to get you numb and help reduce the swelling and inflammation.
