My daughter has swelling and redness over, what I think, isher wisdom tooth trying to come in. Her jaw is sore. It's a saturday night. What do I do?
Swollen gum. If it gets worse or she has a fever call your doctor and dentist. They can help you make sure it's not an abcess or infection.
Teething. She's teething, just like she did when she was a baby. And it always seems to happen on a weekend. Irrigate the area (bulb syringe from drug store) with warm salt water. Dab on Orabase-B w a Q-tip. Take Ibuprofen/Advil/Motrin exactly as per package directions. Call wisdom tooth specialist, an Oral Surgeon. You'll get their answering service. Make arrangements to be seen ASAP.
