If you’re in pain in the source is a tooth, you should schedule a visit to see your dentist as soon possible. However, we understand that you may want a bit of relief until you are able to get to the root of the problem. A toothache isn’t always serious, and it can be caused by several things, but the pain should never be ignored. Whether the pain is due to a cavity, an abscess, or another condition, try the following remedies and see what works for you.
There are a few cheap and inexpensive solutions you can try from the comfort of your own home. Simply rinsing your mouth out with warm water can occasionally ease the pain, especially if you have any food irritating the sore area. Making sure your mouth is a clean as possible is the best way to contain the problem and minimize the pain.
If the pain gets bad enough, you may need to turn to over the counter medication. Whether you choose Aspirin or a similar medication, make sure you carefully read the instructions and take it responsibly. Please keep in mind that pain medication won’t do anything to get rid of the problem. It just temporarily relieves the pain.
The last method we recommend is applying a compress to the outside of your mouth on the side with the toothache. This may provide a bit of relief, and like rinsing your mouth out with water, it is a completely free and simple solution.
Utilize these suggestions to get through the day if you’re toothache is causing too much pain, and don’t go another second without scheduling an appointment to take care of the problem.
