Wisdom tooth, commonly known as ‘Budhi Bangara’ usually comes at the age 17 - 25 years. Slight pain is usual during the eruption of this tooth. However, if you are experiencing severe pain, swelling or difficulty in opening of the mouth, I would like to suggest you to consult the dentist. These can be associated with infection. Sometimes, when there is not enough room for the tooth to come out or if the tooth is not coming in a right direction, it might also cause pain. It will be wise to take out these kinds of teeth before it causes any further problem.
Following home tips might be helpful while you await your dental appointment.
1. Since your tooth is erupting, be sure that bristles of your tooth brush reach there. Proper cleaning reduces the chance of infection and other complications.
2. If you smell any foul smell coming from your mouth, gargle with warm water mixed with salt or with a mouthwash.
