I've had my first wisdom tooth for a couple of years now (lower left) and it's never caused me any pain or anything so we'd just left it as is. I'm booked in for my regular dental checkup on Tuesday August 9thIn the last 7-10 days it's started to cause me a lot of gum pain. I've been using oragel that I got over the counter from a chemist, but all this does is freezes my mouth for short periods of time before the pain returns. I think I need to see a dentist to plan either antibiotics or (shudder shudder) an extractionI called my dental practice a short time ago and asked if I could maybe move my check up forward but unfortunately my dentist is away on holiday for 3 weeks so this won't be possible.Anyone know of anything else I can do? Dunno if it's reasonable to just keep using the oragelThere's a second problem as well, the checkup is arranged for 9 August and will be my last ever checkup at that dentist. I'm moving from central Scotland to London the following week, so if he decides we need to lose that tooth then idk what I can do, unless somehow he can fit me in at very short notice.

OP I have the same problem and every time I visit my dentist about it all she does is prescribe me antibiotics!
