Tooth Ache & Tooth Pain Relief Dentist
We’ve all been there: you’re eating the most delicious meal when you bite down and feel an intense pain in your mouth. Your head starts throbbing and all you can think about is getting pain relief for your tooth. When this happens, you need an emergency dentist immediately.
Immediate Tooth Pain Relief
Having a toothache can really put a damper on your day. As soon as you have a toothache, contact Davis Gribble Hollowwa Dental to schedule an appointment. The longer you wait to have your tooth fixed, the worse the damage will be and the repair may be more extensive.
When you are waiting to get to your appointment with our emergency dentists and you are in pain, try:
- Icing the area
- Rinsing your mouth with warm water
- Taking pain medication, like Tylenol or Ibuprofen
- Using floss to remove any debris that might be impacting your teeth
- Applying a topical numbing agent, like Orajel (do not use for more than a 24 hour period or you risk causing damage to the tissue)
Let our caring dentists know if there has been any swelling, fever, or if you are having trouble breathing or swallowing. These all may be signs of an infection. We’ll treat your ache and give you tooth pain relief in no time!
