Wisdom Teeth Pain

Anyone who has ever had an encounter with wisdom teeth understands the kind of pain these third molars bring about. Some people tend to have a constant sharp pain while others experience it only when chewing food or any other thing. Most doctors advise parents to get their kid’s wisdom teeth pulled out before the onset of pain. Others, however, end up depending on various remedies to help soothe or stop the pain.

If your kid is yet to experience wisdom teeth, then he or she should expect them between the age of 17 and 21. Some arrive much earlier, while others grow later. As a parent, you have to ensure that you know precisely how to deal with the situation once it occurs. That is why you need to know how to treat the wisdom teeth pain of your teen. Some of the best remedies include:

Apple Ice

One of the effective methods to relieve wisdom teeth pain is to use apple ice. Go to your refrigerator or freezer and get a pack of ice. Using a clean cloth, wrap the ice pack and place it on the cheek where your teen kid feels the pain. He or she should be able to feel the pain subside after a short time of application. What the ice does is that it numbs the area, which in turn makes it insensitive to pain. This ends up relieving the pain. It is an ideal method if the teen has inflammation around the area. The ice is also going to make it reduce as well as prevent further swelling.

Teabags

Teabags are also a natural remedy for your son or daughter’s oral pain from wisdom teeth. Teabag contains tannings that have many advantages, including anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. That means it can take care of any pain caused by bacteria or inflammation. Make a cup of tea and cool the tea with the teabag still in it. Then go ahead and give it to your teen so that he or she can place it in the area where the pain is coming emanating. The tea bag is going to stop the inflammation and cure any bacterial problem, thus minimizing discomfort.

Over the counter medication

Over the counter medicines, are among the best options to treat wisdom teeth pain for your teen. They are applicable even if your kid has pediatric crowns. What these medications do is reduce inflammation as well as swelling. By doing so, the medicines lessen the throbbing pain that your kid is feeling. Some of the best over the counter medications include ibuprofen and aspirin. While ibuprofen works well with inflammation and swells, aspirin is a useful pain dulling agent. You should only pick one for your teen. Remember to read the instructions so that you avoid giving your teen more than stated.

Onions

If your son or daughter finds the taste of onions much better than the pain he or she is experiencing, then you have yourself a great solution. Onions are excellent when it comes to killing the infectious germs thanks to the availability of phytochemicals. Many people tend to go for sweet onions, but the fact is that yellow or red onions work much better in such a situation. Ask your teen kid to chew on the onions using his or her wisdom teeth. Your kid should use this remedy whenever pain onsets. Chewing the onion enables the juice to sip through the painful teeth and cause a relief.

Saltwater solution

Salt is an essential mineral that has various properties that are vital to your teen’s oral health. It is also one of the many remedies to wisdom teeth pain, especially if it is due to the availability of bacteria around the area. Dissolve the salt in distilled water, and make your teen swirl it for several minutes. Ensure your kid rinses his or her mouth twice or thrice a day or until the pain subsides. What saltwater solution does is that it acts on the bacteria infection around the area and treats it, thus minimizing discomfort. You need to ensure that the water is warm and not hot. It should also not be cold since that may end up causing more pain once it comes in contact with the nerves.

These remedies are some of the best options you can give your teen whenever he or she starts feeling discomfort. What makes them the best choice is the fact that most of them are readily available at home. That means you don’t have to rush to the shops to purchase them as your kid goes through the agony. The only remedy you have to get from the chemist is aspirin and ibuprofen.
