Painful wisdom tooth

(4 Posts)

I think it's Pericoronitis again because I have a partially erupted wisdom tooth.

I had it before and the first time it was really bad and I was given antibiotics and the second time they just gave it a good clean and me a dental syringe to clean it with.

As it's a weekend any dental people know if I need to see someone or if I keep cleaning it and using corsodyl will it be ok until Monday? It's not too painful atm, I can still open my mouth fully and eat but the glands in my neck are up on that side too. I just fear it getting worse!

Will home care be fine? or do I need to see an emergency dentist for antibiotics?

Hi, I’ve had this so many times, got them taken out in the end. You can still open your mouth, no temperature.. I think you’ll be ok until Monday. I didn’t have antibiotics every time. What’s handy is a calpol syringe- squirt corsodyl right at the inflamed area to give it a good clean. Salt waters good too! If you’ve had pericoronitis twice you should be referred to have the wisdom teeth taken out.
