Wisdom Tooth Pain relief?
My wisdom teeth are coming in, and I’ve never felt such pain in my mouth. The whole left side of my mouth is sore, and I cant close my mouth fully without feeling pain. My dad called the dentist and they said to just take some Tylenol and use Oragel, I did so and it still hurts. Does anyone have any other ways for relief?

Find a different dentist. You may have an infection from a partially erupted wisdom tooth, or impaction, or the pressure of wisdom teeth that are not coming in straight can push against the teeth in front of them and cause pain. Whatever the cause, you need to get in to a dentist (preferably an oral surgeon, but some require a referral from a general dentist first) you will need to have xrays to see where your wisdom teeth are and then you and the oral surgeon can determine the best route for you. good luck. (and don’t listen to all the horror stories about extractions, it’s not that bad and if you are young, you will recover quickly)
