The title really should be wisdom 'tooth', but anyway...
One is starting to come through. Great timing with my exams and all! I've booked a dentist appointment for next Tuesday, but now I'm worried that it will get more and more painful as the week goes on. It's worth noting that practically all my exams are this week, I only have weds off. And 5 hours of exams on Friday.
From your experience, does the pain get alot worse if you leave it? It does sorta hurt now, but I guess it's bearable at the moment. I know it's different in every case but any advice would be good!

Neither. Go to a pharmacy (or supermarkets sell it) and look for clove oil. Mine came in a bright yellow box from morrisons. Then it's either a liquid or a gel, which you dab on a cotton bud and then rub on the hurty bit, trying really hard not to get it on your tongue. It does taste vile, and if you get it on your lips or anywhere it will make it go numb. But it's the best thing ever for getting rid of the pain

Happened to me last year- it hurt the most at the beginning, right as the tooth was poking through. With me, it stopped hurting after a bit. I took some advil for it, but that was about all. Seeing a dentist soon is a good idea, though, and good luck on your exams!
