Wisdom teeth OUCH!


My wisdom teeth are coming through. I've been having on and off pain for a month or so, but now OMFG! I'm about to die. I totally understand my little man being so cranky!
The one on my right side has poked through my gums and it's so sore and swollen and red, can there be infection too? is that possible? or is this just regular pain?

I know exactly how you are feeling!! I am going through the same exact thing.. well it it not as bad as it was a few days ago, but the pain was so awful, it was keeping me up until four in the morning, three or four nights in the past week... I don't know about the whole infection thing, as I was thinking the same thing, but now my gums are not as bad as they were so I guess not!! Anyway, hope you find some relief there!

I've been very lucky with my wisdom teeth so far. 2 Of them are nearly full grown, other 1 is poking through and 1 came but seems to have gone again. So far it really hasn't been that bad. I've had a couple of days of sore gums on and off, but that's it! Apart from when I got in infection, but that was easily cleared with anti biotics =) I'm lucky to have loads of room though.

So yes, it is very possible to get an infection when/while they're coming through. The gum often sits lose on top of the tooth for a while, when it's like this it's very possible to get food stuck underneath it and have that rot causing an infection. If you're worried, go see your dentist. Mine was fantastic, just gave me antibiotics (double dose actually, as I was about to go on vacation) and told me to come back if it happened again. Said that if it happened twice he would write to the hospital for me and make an appointment to get them removed. Didn't want that though, so second time it started to get inflamed again I sort of didn't go back and just used salt mouth wash. Tastes awful, but works wonders!

Thanks so much girls. I'm gonna have to see my dentist if it's still like this! I'm afraid they're not coming through like they should.

I've spent the entire night in pain until I decided to be bad and be a junkie (took some pain killers + sleeping pills) I needed to sleep so bad as we're moving and had loads to do today. I still feel like crap Thankfully my mom is taking care of Josh..
