I am 26 years old. My upper and lower wisdom tooth was extracted two days ago. I am having medicines as per Doctor's prescription. My gums are aching too much. Can I apply ULTRADENT GEL on them. Also can I use antibiotic mouthwash?

You can apply ultradent gel but for now avoid chemical mouthwash as it can irritate the raw area and aggravate pain perception. You can rinse with warm saline water multiple times till the extracted area heals. If sutures are placed in the extracted are you can reduce saline rinse otherwise follow these instructions.
