I have a wisdom tooth coming out is being very swollen for 2 weeks now, what is the best way to lower the inflammation. I have used naproxen 220mg and ibuprofen 800mg for the inflamation and amoxillin 500 mg for any infection. What else I can do Im going to take the tooth out but I need to lower this inflammation first. My jaw is stuck so I can barely eat. Please help me!

  • You have already started with antibiotics and painkillers and it takes minimum 3 days for antibiotics to work. Along with this, you should do warm saline rinses 3-4 times a day and maintain good oral hygiene. Avoid eating from that sidea and take soft diet. This really helps in bringing down the inflammation. for more info on wisdom teeth problems you can check this link in our website.. http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-wisdom-teeth-47.aspx
