Frequently Asked Questions
some questions we often hear from our patients. We hope they can be helpful so you know
how to manage your dental pain before coming to the clinic.
Rinsing with warm salt water may help loosen debris between teeth that may be causing discomfort. Salt is a natural antiseptic that can fight off bacteria and reduce inflammation. It may provide immediate, temporary relief. You can also apply an ice pack to the side of your cheek where you suspect your toothache is. An ice massage helps reduce pain and swelling by constricting the blood vessels and slowing blood flow to the affected area.
It depends on your specific case and the possible cause of the toothache. If the pain comes from the outside or around the tooth, it may subside without a trip to the dentist. However, if the toothache is persistent and you notice a visible fracture in your tooth, it may not go away and require immediate dental treatment. This is particularly crucial if you have sustained recent dental trauma.
When your toothache has been present for more than two days and is unbearable, it may indicate a serious dental problem. We encourage you to see your dentist at Mary River Dental as soon as possible, particularly if you have a fever, difficulty opening your mouth, earache, or swelling in your mouth or face.
Neglecting your toothache can cause various problems that may be detrimental to your dental health. It may heighten the risk of further damage, gum disease, and infection. A present infection can spread to the adjacent teeth and other parts of the body, which can be fatal. Most dental professionals recommend receiving treatment as soon as possible.
