Customer Question

My 7 year old had spacers inserted yesterday and after nearly 24 hours is still in a lot of pain. We've used Motrin and Anbesol and have had no relief. They mentioned that her teeth were very tight. She had bleeding when she brushed and her gums in the area are red and swollen. The dentist office is closed for the weekend

It's been two and a half hours since I initially asked my question. I have a little girl in pain and would appreciate your attention.

Please use iced salt water for mouth rinsing and apply Mouth gel containing glycerine and local anesthetic every 2-3 hours. Motrin may be repeated every 8 hours.
