stacyloaks

I have heard toddlers will have whiskey rubbed on their gums while they are teething, just a little bit, don't know if it works or not, but I bet it couldn't hurt, unless you are a teetotaler.

Orajel, Advil or aspirin, warm water with salt (rinse).

Your doctor should have advised you to take some anti-inflamitory meds (like Advil...) before the the 'novacain' wore off. Still, it's not too late. Take some Advil, or Tylenol.
I have had gum surgery, and what helped a lot was the really warm, table salt rinses. (most people use iodized salt!) Sea salt is a softer version... Also was advised to use the tea bags. (Problem with all of this is that you are recommended not to 'rinse and spit for a while') Hard to do with a mouth full of salt water, or tea bags! Other "PAIN" medications do not help you heal fast.

By this time you probably are already beginning to feel better. The pain goes away within a day or two, but will still be tender until the gums are healed. If you are a smoker (like I am) using a Listerine rinse after you smoke really helps.
Use a toothpaste like Sensodyne, because there will be areas of your teeth that will be exposed to air, heat and cold that are not supposed to be.

Take your anti-biotics properly.
Don't drink sodas or other beverages containing sugars. (also watch out for citrus juices -- they eat away at the unprotected tooth below the gumline that is now exposed...)

Tea is probably the best beverage of choice. Green tea is what I chose. But it is the 'tannin' in the black tea(regular tea bag) that helps with the healing process. Healing process=less pain...

Take some pain killer - you can ask your pharmacist for recommendation. Gum heals pretty fast and you should be OK within a day (if minor) or otherwise within a week (for more major ones)

2 Paradex.

There is a liquid mouth rinse available by prescription from your dentist or doctor - call and ask for it. It tastes like fruit - my dentist called it swish and swallow. You can also get over the counter - liquid chloraseptic - swish this in your mouth and spit out - it helps to numb the gums. You can also get teething gel in the baby section at the drugstore which can be sprayed or rubbed on the gums for pain relief. You don't have to hurt anymore. Good luck -k-

The stuff you rub on your gums to make them feel numb or a cough drop called a Sudecret.
MAKE SURE YOU CAN HAVE IT BEFORE USING ANY

Hope you feel better! :)

I had surgery on my gums and my dentist recommended, tea bags soaked in water hot as you can stand . Hold in mouth on area that hurts [bite down looseley to hold in place]...It worked!


Dr. Albert, DDS, (USA)
BECKY,

YOU NEED TO TAKE ADVIL (IBUPROFEN), THIS IS ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AND INFLAMMATION CAUSES MUCH OF THE PAIN. ASPIRIN WILL NOT HELP YOU BECAUSE IT'S AN ANTI-COAGULANT. YOU WILL BLEED MORE. ORAJEL CONTAINS BENZOCAINE AND WILL ONLY OFFER TEMPORARY RELIEF, AND HAS NO ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFITS.
YOU CAN SAFELY TAKE 4 (FOUR) 200mg EVERY 4-6 HOURS FOR THE CONTROL OP PAIN IS BEST.

Any sort of antiseptic throat spray that has panadene forte in it will work greaet, it will numb the gums!

Also take so panadol!

Goodluck!


poldi
Clove oil, available in the first aid section of the drug store. Put a little on a Q tip and dab it on the sensitive areas - it will dull the pain for a few hours (try not to swallow it, it can burn a bit going down, but its not harmful).

I have always used warm water and salt rinse.
