My wife has 5 wisdom teeth that need to be removed (they haven't yet because we just had a baby girl 3 weeks ago, and we haven't had time). Well, all 5 are in really bad shape, and one of them has pretty much shattered and fallen out of her mouth, leaving just the root. Any time she tries to chew on that side of her mouth, one of the wisdom teeth gets irritated and she ends up barely being able to open her mouth, and that side of her face swells up. She has tried oxycodone 5-325mg (which is from having the baby since she had a c-section), ambesol, a jaw pain relief cream that's for lockjaw, icing it.. Nothing has worked. All of those either have extremely little effect, or no effect at all. We are both quite aware that she needs to go to the dentist and get surgery to have them removed, but aside from that, anyone have any remedies for something like this? I've heard tea bags work, but she starts to get sick to her stomach from that after about 10-15mins. I've also heard tylenol and advil, but if the oxycodone didn't work, would it make any difference to use either one of those? Any help would be much appreciated, I hate seeing her in pain like this.
