The best toothache remedy known to man!

urgent-dental-care-2.jpgDo you really want to know the best toothache remedy known to man? Are you sure? You’re not going to like the answer!  You guessed it; the best toothache remedy known to man is making an appointment with your dentist!

I agree it seems much easier to do an internet search and go right into the kitchen cabinet for all your pain killers, but if it seems too easy to be true….. It’s because it usually is.

When some people are in need of urgent dental care they may search for home remedies instead of visiting the dentist.  People do this because they are either afraid to visit dentists, they fear treatment will be too expensive, or they truly believe in taking a homeopathic route to their pain.  Some remedies include placing clove oil in the affected area, biting on a peppermint tea bag, using salt water rinses, or dissolving an aspirin near the painful area.  While some of these remedies may temporarily numb the area, none are going to treat the problem causing the pain, and aspirin will actually burn your gum tissue causing more problems and more pain! 

The best toothache remedy is seeing your dentist.  The longer you go without treatment, the more serious your toothache can become.  Ibuprofen is the best medicine for tooth pain because of its anti-inflammatory properties, but even if a pain reliever alleviates your symptoms you should still visit your dentist.  Pain can sometimes indicate the presence of an infection, and no at home toothache remedy can treat an infection.  You have to visit your dentist and treat the source of the problem. Although you may not be excited to make an urgent dental care appointment appointment, the toothache relief you will feel when you are out of pain is PRICELESS!

A toothache is a real force to be reckoned with!  Anyone who has had one can tell you it is some of the worst pain imaginable.  Some women even compare the pain to experiencing childbirth!  Toothaches can be caused by a myriad of things some examples are, large cavities, abscesses, tooth fractures, damaged fillings, infected gums, or grinding.  When the pain comes on, the symptoms can wake you up right out of your sleep!  Some patients complain of sharp throbbing, constant dull aches, swelling, head and earaches, and even severe jaw pain.  When suffering from a toothache, you need urgent dental care fast, and our office takes pride in seeing same day emergency patients.  We strive to take time in even our busiest schedules to get a patient in pain, out of pain as quickly as possible.
