Manage Tooth Pain & Dental Emergencies

Post by: Gerarda on 02 Nov 2021

Tooth pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including tooth decay, gum disease, abscesses, and injury. To manage tooth pain until you can see your dentist, you can try the following:

1. Over-the-counter pain relief such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen if you are not allergic, can help alleviate pain and inflammation.

2. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water to help reduce swelling and pain.

3. Apply a cold compress to the outside of your cheek to help reduce pain and swelling.

4. Avoid eating or drinking hot or cold foods and liquids as they can exacerbate pain.

5. If the pain persists, or is severe, it’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible.

In any case make a dental appointment to find out the origins of the pain or swelling so it can be treated in a timely manner.
