How do you manage the pain until you get to see your dentist? Here are some tips and home remedies to help you ease the pain for as long as you can.
Rinse Your MouthOne way to help ease the pain caused by erupting molars and wisdom teeth is to rinse your mouth out with warm salt water. Take a small glass of warm water and stir in a teaspoon of salt until it dissolves. Place this in your mouth for 30-60 seconds, swishing it around while it is in your mouth and spitting out after you are done. Do this as much as you need to throughout the day to help manage the pain.
