While there are a few home treatments you can use to treat the pain associated with wisdom teeth, these alternatives are not sufficient to replace professional services from a licensed practitioner. If you try one or more of these treatments, be sure that you also seek out the aid of your dentist.

One of the home remedies you may consider using is the application of clove oil. Wet a cotton ball or Q-tip with no more than a couple of drops of clove oil, then place it on the injured area for no more than around three minutes; any longer than this can cause burns to the soft tissue spots of your oral cavity. Unfortunately, this relief will only be impermanent, and once you take out the cotton, the area will start hurting again soon.

You might want to try tea bags. Peppermint tea has numbing materials that can soothe aching chompers, and black tea contains acids which lower bleeding. When your pearly whites seem to be bleeding excessive amounts of blood, you can wet a tea bag and place it on top of the bleeding area, biting down to develop pressure and assist it to develop clots. If the bleeding is rapid or constant after using the tea bag, please contact our office asap.
