    I know the pain. I have so far had 4 lots of antibiotics for wisdom tooth infections to try keep it at bay until I can have it out. I highly recommend getting soluble cocodamol tablets dissolving them in water and holding the solution over the area where it hurts in your mouth. Really helps. Go to the dentist and get some corsodyl, my dentist always tries to prescribe me it until i remind him its 3 quid cheaper to buy it. Ibuprofen if you can have it.

    Get some clove oil. It's really good for getting rid of/reducing toothache.

    1. Rinse your mouth with salt water.
    2. Mix a few drops of clove oil with a half teaspoon of olive oil.
    3. Soak a cotton ball in the oils and hold it on the affected tooth.

    Good luck at the dentists

    i think we might have ibuprofen so i'll give that a go. how long does it usually take for your swelling to go? im thinking of having the tooth removed; it really has been pissing me off for the last year or so.

    Buy some tomorrow, if it's that bad?

    Or, if you live with your parents, they might have some right at the back of a cupboard somewhere.

    Takes me a week at a time because whats happening is my wisdom tooth is growing at such an angle that its growing into my cheek and ive got a permanent cut and he said its all ulcerated. So it doesnt take much for it to get re-infected and so basically its permanently puffed up.Also something I've just remembered, go to the pharmacy and ask for some difflam mouthwash, makes your whole mouth go numb, its amazing.
