If you are looking for ways to relieve a toothache, then you have come to the right blog. Today, our dentists, Dr. Alan Rembos and Dr. Jose Alvarez, are happy to discuss the ways to eliminate your toothache and return to the top-notch health and comfort you deserve. Now, remember: It’s important to identify the cause of a toothache because if it’s a symptom of a serious problem, you need to schedule an appointment right away.
To help you relieve your toothache, our dentist recommends trying the following things:
-Brush and floss (Cleaning the teeth and gums can help remove any irritating substances that are causing the toothache.)
-Swish with saltwater (This can help by reducing inflammation, relieving pain and eliminating infection in the area.)
-Ice the tooth (Icing the area can help reduce pain and swelling.)
-Rinse hydrogen peroxide (This can have the same effects as the salt water. Just make sure to dilute the peroxide with water.)
-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.)
