What You Need to Do When a Toothache Comes Up

Posted on 2/10/2018 by Dr. Justin Lai
Tooth Pain Edge Dental TX 77079When you are suffering from a toothache, you want to be able to get it situated as soon as possible. This means being able to find the best place to go to get the help that you need.

However, when you do not have access to a dentist that has working emergency hours or someone that can see you right away, you have to know how to reduce the pain that you are in. No one likes to be in pain, especially when it is pain caused by a tooth.

Here are some things you can do to reduce the pain that you are in before you are able to be seen by a dentist. Remember, it is important that you speak with a dentist sooner, rather than later to have the toothache taken care of.

Tips for Reducing Tooth Pain

By being able to reduce the pain you are in, you can feel much more comfortable while waiting to see the dentist. Over the counter anti-inflammatory and pain management medications can help to take some of the pain away.

Not only that, but adding ice to the outside of the area where it hurts can help reduce some of the swelling that is causing the pain to happen in the first place.

You may consider using an over the counter numbing agent, as well since this can provide you with a way to temporarily reduce the amount pain that you are currently in.

While this does not last a long time, it can take enough of the edge off to make it tolerable while you are waiting to be seen by the dentist or until the pain medication kicks in.

If you are experiencing a toothache, make sure to give our office a call. We can have you come in at the earliest convenience to ensure that the problem is taken care of.

You should not have to worry about being in pain for an extended period of time. We will do whatever we can to put an end to not only your discomfort, but also help prevent it come reoccurring.
