What to Do If You Have Tooth Pain
Tooth pain is another reason to call us right away. Putting off a trip to the dentist due to a toothache can result in more severe dental problems and can cost you more in the long run. When suffering from tooth pain, you can try a few things while waiting to get in to see your dentist. Flossing around the area that is in pain can possibly rid food that has lodged in between the teeth and causing pain. You can also rinse your mouth with warm salt water to help with the pain and possible infection. Another way to ease the pain is by using a cold compress on your face if you are experiencing swelling. Ultimately, scheduling a checkup with your dentist is the best option to find the underlying problem and get relief of pain.
