Toothache Or Dental Pain

Toothache Detail 01

A toothache, or dental pain, is one of the most aggravating dental emergencies.

The pain occupies your mind and your schedule is ruined. Some people even lose appetite.

The invention of OTC painkillers has certainly helped. The pain is numbed for a few hours while you schedule your dental appointment.

Unfortunately, some people believe that painkillers are the solution. They are not. Frequent intake can even pose dangers to your health.

That’s why we at Caringbah Dental Care promote oral health awareness in our patients. We instruct our patients in the correct way to deal with their dental emergency.

For toothaches, we have same day emergency appointments available.

Common Causes Of Toothache

Toothache is an indication that a dental issue has progressed to an alarming level and therefore needs immediate attention. Below are the common dental problems associated with toothache:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Infected pulp
  • Dental abscess
  • Receding gums
  • Tooth eruption
  • Broken tooth
  • Bruxism

First Aid Steps

The first aid steps subdue pain and may slow the development of the dental problem but they do not bring the problem to an end. To do that, you need the help of a professional dentist. In case of a toothache, here’s what you can do:

  • Make sure that there is no food debris wedged between teeth.
  • Gently brush your teeth. Floss afterwards.
  • Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash, saline solution, or peppermint tea.
  • To numb pain, take OTC painkillers. Do not apply painkillers on the aching area to avoid chemical burn.
  • Call and visit your dentist immediately.

Treatment At Forster Dental Centre

To properly treat the issue and stop the problem from damaging your teeth, the cause must be diagnosed and addressed. Treatment varies according to the cause of the toothache.

For example, if the cause is infected pulp a root canal procedure may be recommended.

Your dentist will provide solutions as well as personalised oral hygiene instructions.
