I am 44 year old teacher. I am suffering from tooth ache for the past three days, dentist has suggested wisdom tooth extraction and rest for 5 days. Since I have college's annual exams, I can not take leave for another 15 days. I have given pain killing gel which gives temporary relief. Please suggest alternative treatment. Thanks.

There is no alternative of extraction as it is wisdom totoh , sucess of RCT is very low, you may take antibiotic & analgesic till then.
Continue with what has been suggested earlier rinse with warm salt water five six times a day it will help you use about 1 tea spoon of salt in one glass of water.
