Wisdom teeth are the third set of molar at the back of your mount. They erupt between the ages of 17 to 25 and begin to move up the jawbone to become a part of your daily chewing. During the eruption, you may experience inflammation in your gums, the affected areas may bleed, or you may experience headaches or tooth pain. Below are described four ways to help relieve wisdom tooth pain.
1. Saltwater rinseIt is one of the most popular ways to relieve wisdom tooth pain. Rinsing your mouth with warm salty water, promotes healthy gums, and kills the harmful bacteria. Wisdom teeth can sometimes form cysts or hurt your other teeth when they erupt. So keeping your mouth free from harmful bacteria is a good idea.
2. Tea tree oilTea tree oil is an excellent antibacterial agent that kills bacteria in your mouth. But this remedy is powerful; therefore, do not apply it directly to your teeth. Instead, mix tea tree oil with coconut oil or some other antibacterial agent and then apply it to your inflamed gums. Make sure not to swallow the tea tree oil, rinse and spit out the residue immediately after application.
3. PeppermintPeppermint contains oil that can reduce inflammation and reduce pain. To apply, soak the peppermint extract in a cotton ball and apply it to the affected gums. You can also use peppermint tea as a mouth wash after it cools down.
4. TurmericTurmeric has been used over the years as a spice and natural remedy for stomach pain. The anti-inflammatory qualities of turmeric make it very useful for tooth remedy. You can rub crushed turmeric directly to the inflamed gums or rinse your mouth with water boiled with 5 grams of turmeric and two cloves.
