Do you have a toothache? If so, you are most likely looking for a way to relieve it. You’re not alone. Many people find toothaches to be quite painful, annoying, and inconvenient. It’s best to treat the cause of a toothache rather than just the pain so you can have the best results possible. Our dentists, Dr. Todd Resek and Dr. Howard Nader, are happy to help you treat the source of the pain by giving you some tips. You should try doing the following things:
-Brush and floss (If something is stuck between your teeth or along the gums, brushing and flossing can remove it.)
-Swish with saltwater (This can help remove irritating debris, reduce swelling and clean infected areas.)
-Ice the tooth (Icing can help reduce swelling and pain.)
-Rinse hydrogen peroxide (Dilute the hydrogen peroxide with water and rinse it regularly. This can do the same as swishing with saltwater.)
-Take medication (Over-the-counter pain medications can help relieve pain.)
-Schedule an appointment (If the mentioned tips do not help you, it’s best to visit your dentist. There is a chance a more dangerous problem could be causing your toothache.)
