Re: Wisdom tooth out - how to beat the pain non chemically?

This pain for so long is not normal.

I had my four wisdom teeth removed at the same time, and they were still in my jaws so the surgeon had to drill holes through the bone to get them out. The first and second days were somewhat painful, but by the third one I was simply sore.

It hurts inside the crater,goes in my ear and eye,but no unpleasant smell or taste...

I might just have some weird reaction to painkillers,they dont really work,they had to give me 6 injections,had to wait an hour just for them to kick in..i always had issues with anesthesia,though,epidural,etc.

So,not sure...just dont feel like munching a lot of ibuprofen,yuck.

I so want to avoid that chair again,ick.But this is evil.
I have ibuprofen 600 mg. that kick in, I'm tellin' ya

Not all people react the same way to a given medicament. Every pain killer erects sort of a threshold against pain. If the pain level is higher than that threshold, a higher dosage doesn't help any.

In MC's case, with Ibu 800 lasting for only two hours, that pain level must be pretty high. That's a situation where combatting pain doesn't make any sense. Curing the cause of the pain is what's needed, and that cause most likely is an infection in the socket.

Re: Wisdom tooth out - how to beat the pain non chemically?

Had my wisdom tooth removed 3 weeks ago.

Had 3 removed before, never had an issue, pain would be gone after 3 days. This last one, has been hurting for 3 weeks. First week was ok, pain increase after day 9, went back and hole was rinsed. Normally, the pain should be gone after 2 weeks max.

Now, finally, the pain is almost gone. The only painkiller that workd was Menaficid 500 mg or Spiralgin 500 mg. Ibuprofen didnt work, as ususal.

If the pain is still that severe after more than 1 week, go to the dentist to have it checked.

Re: Wisdom tooth out - how to beat the pain non chemically?

MC, "brave up" and call the dentist first thing tomorrow morning, and make an urgency appointment immediately. Although everyone's experience is different, a severe pain after that long is not normal IMO. You cannot lose by going to the doctor immediately: if it is an infection or something of the sort, better to deal with it sooner than later, as further severe complications might arise the more you wait. If it is "just" a matter of pain, then at least you know it's nothing worse, and you can take all the painkillers - natural or chemical. But if, unfortunately, it is the former case, painkillers will only be a provisory solution and not really solve the problem.

When I got my three wisdom teeth removed at once (only had 3, go figure), two of which were still in, so the dentist had to cut into the bones, I had it done on Friday early am, was heavily sedated all day on day 1, on day 2-3 I was up and even went out grocery shopping under massive painkillers, on day 4 (Monday) I was back in the office with only discomfort, but no pain. It took a few weeks for the discomfort to go away completely and for the wounds to be fully recovered, but definitely the crazy pain was over in a couple of days.

Best wishes from me for a prompt recovery, but please, please call the dentist ASAP, if only for letting him/her tell you that all will get better and there is no infection!

Actually, even a pretty big removal of solid bone to dig out an impacted wisdom tooth normally doesn't hurt longer than two or three days. Discomfort -- yes, but pain is not a good sign.

Just as I wrote above, different people react differently. Mefenacid 500 and Spiralgin 500 are the same as Ponstan 500 (known as Ponstel in the USA). Usually Ibuprofen is stronger, but in your case it isn't. I have patients who say even an ordinary Aspirin Cardio works better for them than Ponstan. What works for you needn't work for others.

I'd say anything longer than four or five days should get professional attention. And I'm not saying this because I make a living out of it. I'm an oral surgeon, but let's face it, such petty emergency stuff yields very little profit, if any. It's for medical reasons that I say it again: MC, see your dentist.

I must say that my dentist was a darling in that regard. Pain after a problem that she treated. I went back, had a clean. She never billed be for those 10 minutes. I swear it was in Switzerland. Honest.

Re: Wisdom tooth out - how to beat the pain non chemically?

Ok I'm a retired dentist ( cos I work in medical devices now: )) but it sounds like a dry socket. So please go back to a dentist so they can irrigate it and pack it with alvogel, and probably prescribe you some Metronidazole, if you can take it. ( but no alchohol while on it, so the whiskey idea has to cease during this time )

May take a couple of followups to solve if it's a bad case, but better get it seen to sooner than later.

Re: Wisdom tooth out - how to beat the pain non chemically?

So much knowledge here, you are the bestest people..

Ok, so I cave in last night, and popped painkillers to be able to put my kiddo asleep and not moan to her ear, and it made me super dizzy, might be specifically the Swiss version of ibu, Dolo-Spedifen, but I couldn't get up from her bed and think straight, nor type, so I am defo laying off the painkillers.

The tooth still hurts, but it seems to be the whole lower part, the bone, and mainly, my jaw joint, or it feels that way, I wonder if it's even the crater that hurts, or, I just had the jaw joint messed up? Or is it the nerves that make the bone seem to hurt? I loaded up on my fav comfort food, raclette.

If it's still bad, I will go thursday, today and tomorrow I werk too much, and have a kiddo to tend to.

At least the weather is soooo nice.

Re: Wisdom tooth out - how to beat the pain non chemically?

Stuff work- and get Mr Muddy to look after little one so you can go and check. If something is wrong 2 days is too long to wait, sorry. Both Mr M and little one will be in a lot more mess if you don't treat an infection, or a cracked jaw, or whatever. I used to work like a maniac, but life's too short when an emergency arises. You could have enjoyed your holiday and have had your tooth taken out in school time and had days off work. Loyalty is wonderful.. but enough is enough. Honestly MC. Where is that *hug* smiley.

clove oil as non chemical ...
Clove oil is largely Eugenol - what do you mean "non-chemical". (I made clove oil in the lab once from raw "chemical" ingredients).

Different pain-killers work in different ways - I find ibuprofen useless against sinus pain, but paracetemol works like a charm.. If ibuprofen doesn't work, try paracetemol for example. ALWAYS follow the instructions, as an overdose of paracetemol is very bad.

If the pain is topical, then an appliable painkiller - like Oil of Cloves can be very effective. Chewing on aspirin, while tasting foul, can also be very effective.

As others have said though - go see a professional asap.

You are so right, I tried Ataralgin, paracetamol usually does nada, but this time it worked, its some mix of paracetamol, guaiphenezine and caffeine. It worked, could teach, way hay..

I will have it checked, it's uncanny. I will live through tomorrow, I have too much to take care of, but thur it is. Seriously. Adent, save me, please. Even for the large bill. Ugh.

Re: Wisdom tooth out - how to beat the pain non chemically?

Glad you're out of pain, and without having to go through more poking about!

Suggest you have a long chat with the dentist about your painful experience, he might be able to prescibe different pain meds next time.... although of course things might be fine for the other tooth!

Now that wisdom is out, you can get married. It will give the illusion of a strong pain killer - but only in the first few weeks. Your wisdom tooth will become a distant memory.

Re: Wisdom tooth out - how to beat the pain non chemically?

Reading this thread has totally put me off from getting my last remaining wisdom tooth taken out. It's on the bottom, impacted, with the roots quite far into the jaw, so the dental surgeon would have to take out a lot of bone. Plus, the risk of damaging the nerve.

That's why I had the four done at the same time. I knew that if I did just one I would never go back for the others
