August 16, 2019

Toothache happens to everyone at some point in their life, and it doesn’t matter what you do to avoid it, you are probably going to experience it the same as everyone else. But, this usually occurs at night time, or out of hours when you can’t get to a dentist, and if this is the case, then what should you do? In this article, we are going to be looking at some of the things that you can do in a dental emergency, so keep reading to find out more information. If this issue occurs during the daytime, you can contact your normal dentist.

Call Image Dental

The first thing that you can do is call Image Dental who will provide the care that you need. It is never easy to get rid of toothache, but this dentist will be here for you, allowing you to get the pain fixed as soon as possible. If there is anything wrong with your tooth other than your standard toothache, Image Dental will be more than happy to assess, diagnose, and fix the issue as soon as they can. You are not going to be in pain for a second longer than necessary when you trust Image Dental with your emergency dental needs.

Saltwater Rinse

Something else that we suggest you try is a saltwater rinse. To make this happen, simply put salt in a glass of water and swirl it around in your mouth. This helps to clean your gums and teeth and has been known to be effective when it comes to providing relief for toothaches. You can use either cold or warm water as both have been known to be productive, but warm water is generally considered to be the best option here. This is one of the best things that you can do until you can see a dentist, so make sure that this is one of the very first things that you are doing. If you are not able to see a dentist for a couple of days, then make sure that you are completing this a few times per day to get the best results.

Try Taking Painkillers

As with any other pain, a lot of people will turn to painkillers if they want to get rid of the issue at hand. Over the counter medication is a good idea if you are experiencing a toothache as a lot of the time, they will be able to provide you the relief that you are looking for. Make sure that you have read the labels on all packaging before you take them for pain relief to ensure that it is safe to do so. You should also make sure that you are only taking the recommended dose to avoid any further complications.

"Dr. Amy is like the golden goddess of all things teeth. Seriously I look up at those beautiful browns and just do whatever she tells me to. No, in all seriousness, you could not be in better hands both in skill and bedside manner. After you catch your breath, take a minute to listen to her professional advice. She's helped me a lot and I feel great about my smile."
