Should You Go to the ER or Dentist?

Intense mouth pain could leave you considering a visit to the emergency room. Unfortunately, the most doctors can do is provide relief through painkillers. We recommend seeing your dentist who will be able to perform dental procedures to solve the problem at its root. Contact us if you are experiencing extreme pain from a toothache.

Toothache Causes

Toothaches can sneak up on you, seemingly out of nowhere. Look out for these issues that may indicate a pesky, painful toothache is in your future. If you can catch the problem before it worsens you can usually avoid mouth pain altogether.

At-Home Remedies

It’s unlikely you can banish a toothache entirely with at-home remedies, but it can help with temporary relief. Here’s some tips for managing toothache symptoms before getting in to see your dentist.

  • Cleanse with a warm salt water rinse
  • Use a diluted hydrogen peroxide mouthwash
  • Try a cold compress on the affected area
  • Dab a small amount of clove oil on the affected area
