  • If wisdom teeth are broken, then they need to be pulled out. Wisdom teeth don’t aid in mastication so no treatment is required for the wisdom tooth. Surgical extraction of wisdom tooth is done in most of the cases. Dentist will numb you and then will remove the tooth. For some pain relief, you can do warm saline rinses 3-4 times a day. Warm saline rinses will reduce swelling of gums in that area and will provide some relief. You can also apply orajel over site. You can keep a clove over that site and can take pain meds. Avoid eating from side of affected tooth and maintain good oral hygiene. Food accumulates in relation to broken wisdom tooth will aggravate the pain. You can try these remedies for pain relief.
