What to do if gum hurts when a wisdom tooth grows
It is better not to engage in self-treatment, because you can miss a serious pathology that requires, for example, surgical intervention. At first glance it may seem that for pain relief it is enough to drink a painkiller, rinse the mouth. But this does not solve the problem, but only temporarily alleviate the condition. Moreover. A pill can mask the symptoms and you end up with numerous complications. Therefore, do not engage in amateur activities, but at the earliest opportunity, consult a doctor.
When using any medication, you must strictly follow all precautions and follow the recommendations of the doctor. This is especially important in dentistry. This is due to the fact that with the wrong treatment, a number of complications can develop. During the dissemination of the inflammatory process, the entire oral cavity is involved in the pathological process, the pathology of the gum is quickly transmitted to all other teeth, moreover, to the neighboring structures - the nasal cavity, lymph nodes. The greatest danger is that the infection develops very quickly, pus, which due to the proximity of the location very quickly migrates to the vestibular apparatus, the inner ear, the brain. So, let us clarify the main precautionary measure - before using any medicine, even the most innocent, consult a doctor. This will avoid all the above complications. Below, we will consider drugs that can be prescribed by a doctor, or which can be drunk by yourself if emergency assistance is required, but there is no possibility to consult a doctor.

Vitamins are taken only if the risk of developing a bacterial infection is excluded, as well as if there is no pus.
