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.
When to seek treatment
Toothache Red Flags
While you should have any toothache attended to quickly, these are indicators you should seek emergency dental care:
- 🚩 Fever
- 🚩 Headache
- 🚩 Persistent, intense pain
- 🚩 Swollen face or neck glands
- 🚩 Difficulty swallowing or opening mouth
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.
Get temporary relief
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
How We Help
Dental Treatments for Toothaches
In the case of severe tooth decay, your dentist may determine extractions are the best option.
In most instances of decay, your dentist will relieve tooth decay symptoms with a filling.
Toothaches caused by an infection of the tooth’s nerve will be treated with a root canal.
If you experience a fever or swelling, your dentist will likely prescribe an antibiotic.
