I started taking over
pain reliever and using numbing gel, and this helps, but the
pain persisted. I finally called my dentist to ask what he thought, and he said it sounded like a piece of food was stuck under the gum
where my wisdom teeth are coming through, and was causing discomfor
t. He recommended using the gel to numb the area, then cleaning under the gum
with peroxyl spot gel. He said that after I did that, the pain should go away quickly.
