Thank goodness my dentist told me to find Orabase, I had two wisdom teeth pulled and once pain medicine wore off, I discovered a cut in the side of my tongue. The cut caused my tongue to burn VERY badly each time I tried to eat food or drink certain drinks. It was a for-sure diet aid, but not one that I was very fond of having. I waited a few days and finally called the dentist asking for medicine and a fix for this pain that I was experiencing. He said that I must have bitten my tongue while under the pain meds and the best solution for this was Orabase.
I searched for stores that had it in my area and picked it up from Walgreens along with another bottle of Ibuprophen. I had been using Orajel mouth rinse but hadn’t felt any ease in discomfort until using the Orabase. The Orabase temporarily sealed the cut and numbed my tongue a bit which truly gave the best ease in discomfort. The Orabase can be used a few times a day and in this case was a lifesaver!
As far as the double wisdom tooth removal, I am fine. I never experienced any swelling and I even had one tooth that fought the dentist and didn’t want to break free. It took a set of xrays and special maneuvering to get it to break free. Now all four wisdom teeth are gone and no more of this aggravation. I should have had these wisdom teeth pulled way before now, but when you are stubborn like I am, sometimes it just takes a lot longer to get things like this done.
