My wisdom tooth is loose and painful?

Are you experiencing that dreadful sensation of having a loose tooth? It’s not pleasant, especially if the tooth in question is your wisdom tooth. What are you meant to do with this predicament? Pull out pliers and attempt to yank out the perpetrator? As amusing as it sounds, there are some more civilised solutions that don’t require channeling MacGyver. Here are some tips on what to do when your wisdom tooth starts causing unwelcome intrusions into your day.

Understanding Why Your Wisdom Teeth Are Loose

The first step in figuring out what action plan for relief from discomfort is understanding why this has happened in the first place. Unfortunately, with age comes many changes – bones weaken over time-just like everything else! As we grow older, our teeth can also become faulty which could lead them becoming lose or painful-it’s not always possible to make heads or tails of a situation such as this without professional dental advice!

A Brief Overview: The Purpose of Wisdom Teeth

Contrary to popular belief (or lack thereof), wisdom teeth(these guys) originally had functional purposes such as aiding us in processing tough foods like raw meat & crunchy vegetables thanks to their impressive chewing power.Wisdom teeth were essential when early humans diets largely comprised these foodstuff; they really moved mountains..of grindstone material-yay evolution!

Luckily, now Hominidae have less brittle jaws which requires less grinding capability.So while no longer essential,it hasn’t stopped generation upon generation producing molars wanting-to-break-free oh dear(keep reading).

Should You Experiment With Self-Care?

There’s nothing wrong with attempting home remedies considering clinics visits may be difficult during current times but it’s important lest-injured-or-spreading COVID patients frequent those instances only.Understanding human limitations’ prior application use practices help move cautiously:

1) Warm Salt-water Mouthwash: Mix a teaspoon of salt into warm water and rinse your mouth vigorously. Salt reduces inflammation, thus providing some much-needed relief from the pain. Be sure to repeat this two or three times daily.

2) Cold compress:Wrap an ice pack in a towel and hold it against the affected side of your face for about 15 minutes every hour.TIP! The Cold unravels swelling & muscle tension so if you’re feeling rather aggravated-think frozen peas/toweling up.

As always-whilst self care is theoretically alluring at some point seeking assistance from slightly more qualified individuals may be required..

Seeking Professional Assistance

If the discomfort persists unfortunately most likely professional intervention will be needed.A dental hygienist should see what can usefully be done whether extraction holds merit.

Tooth Extraction: “Once Upon A Time…The War on Germs Started”

Sometimes tooth decay gets too advanced that no matter how strategic-seeming brushing tactics implement beyond-the-point gum disease takes root.Of course whilst prevention-is-better-than-cure message brings out necessary attention now perhaps let’s take immediate action:

| Pros      | Cons                                          |
|-----------    |-----------------------------------------------|
| Babysoft gums possible   after surgery                        | Swelling/discomfort post-op                |
| A guarantee of tooth eradication -tada-       | Financially Inconvenient                   |

It might seem distressing, but having painful teeth pulled is completely normal! We’ve all had those moments when our pearly whites simply weren’t worth keeping around anymore!

Prescription Painkillers:

Should medication appeal as first choice different prescriptions exist depending on severity(or preference where available or prescribed).

1) Acetaminophen/Panadol/Tylenol;
2) Celebrex/Nuprin (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)
3) Opioids

Perhaps after the extraction, medicine has improved temporarily but a follow up with your dentist never goes amiss trying to essentially ‘forget’ all tooth-related happening may inevitably lead into future agitations.

Key Takeaways

Wisdom teeth problems are something many of us might experience in our lifetime. Thankfully there’s no need for panic as unfortunately it’s quite common on our dental journeys.

1) Warm salt-water mouthwash plays huge role in relief.
2)Consult with professionals if symptoms persist
3) Always try and prevent poor oral hygiene (that’s right -brush & floss like grandma taught ya!’)

It’s crucially necessary speaking to appropriate personnel when wisdom teeth begin giving issue; you’ll end up feeling relieved knowing what options suit whatever case you find yourself in!
