Exposed root tip

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: thetruth  (8 years ago)
Hello,
I’ve got problems with my wisdom tooth on the top right side. It broke off a few days ago and now it has an exposed root tip. It hurts when I eat anything cold and sweet. I can brush and floss it either. I am having them removed next week. I am looking for some ways to ease the pain until I can get to see the dentist. Any tips/suggestions? Thanks a lot.

The only thing I can think of is applying OTC topical benzocaine on a Q-Tip.

Sensitivity to cold/sweet and the fact that it's already chipped definitely tells me the rest of your wisdom tooth is cracked too. To combat the pain and sensitivity temporarily, get yourself some orajel.
