Home Remedies for Wisdom Tooth Pain

When wisdom teeth grow, your gums would be inflamed and irritated. As a result, the affected area can bleed and trigger persistent pain. This sensation might resolve over time, but in some cases, you need active home remedies to make it more comfortable and keep doing your daily tasks. Read our article to learn 10 simple ways to relieve your wisdom tooth pain before surgery.

Ice Pack

A simple way to relieve the pain caused by an impacted wisdom tooth is to keep an ice pack around the affected area. This can make blood vessels restrict and reduce the amount of blood flow, which eventually alleviates inflammation and reduces pain. Make sure to wrap ice cubes in a cloth to prevent frostbite from burning your skin. Try to keep the pack for at least 15 minutes to get the best effects. You can try this home remedy several times during the day. [1]
