What can be done for periodontal ligament pain?


Answer by  informant31 (510)

One way to treat the pain is by using a mouth guard. This helps protect the teeth. Anti inflammatory drugs such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen will help with pain and inflammation until the next dental or doctor visit. Natural remedies such as applying clove oil to the area of pain and swishing with baking soda may help.

First, rinse your mouth with a salt water wash. Then, apply a clove directly to the painful spot on the gums. This should temporarily relieve the discomfort.

This is most often caused by clenching, bite or alignment problems, or a trauma to the area- treatments include mouth guards, re-education on "use" of your mouth, realignment treatments.

Your doctor or dentist can prescribe a prescription anti-inflammatory medication for periodontal ligament pain. You can also try over the counter products such as Tylenol, Motrin or Advil. The doctor may prescribe ibuprofen, or they may suggest dental surgery to remedy the problem. See your dentist for the best treatment.
