Toothache

Toothache

Pain is a sure indication that something is wrong. If trapped food is the source of the toothache, gently flossing the area to dislodge the food should give immediate relief. If the pain continues, you may try applying ice. (Wrap ice in a cloth. Apply on the outside of your cheek in the area of pain for 20 minutes, then off 20 minutes.) DO NOT apply heat. DO NOT put aspirin directly on the tooth or gums.

Untreated nagging toothache or tooth decay is a gateway to a host of serious dental problems that may result in a toothache. While a cavity may not cause significant tooth pain, the consequences of untreated tooth decay leads to potentially painful bouts of tooth pain.

Small cavities that only involve the enamel are usually painless, and generally go undetected by the patient. Once the decay penetrates through the enamel, it invades the dentin layer of the tooth. At this point the cavity is likely just cold- and sweet-sensitive. As the decay progresses deeper into the tooth, the pain intensifies. Pain from a toothache caused by a cavity is best described as sharp and intermittent.

First Aid remedy for a toothache

First, thoroughly rinse your mouth with warm water. Use dental floss to remove any lodged food. If your mouth is swollen, apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth or cheek. Never put aspirin or any other painkiller against the gums near the aching tooth because it may burn the gum tissue. Make sure you call our office as soon as possible at 720-440-9598 so that we can get your dental treatment underway quickly.

Dental care for a toothache

Emergency Dental Denver provides only the most recent methods of dispensing anesthesia & other advances available to make your visit to the dentist as comfortable as possible. Toothache pain can often be effectively handled with over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprophen (Advil®), naproxen (Aleve®), or acetaminophen (Tylenol®), to be taken as directed.
