Our staff is eager to help you find relief from dental pain with restorative dentistry. With calming sedation dentistry or gentle dental care, our goal is to help you recover quickly and feel confident again in your restored smile.
You may be surprised how often a little roughhousing with the family or playing sports can result in a dental injury. If you have a knocked out tooth, seek your emergency dentist immediately and place the tooth in a small container of whole milk or saliva to keep it moist. If you have a chipped tooth, cracked tooth or broken tooth, rinse the mouth gently with warm water and apply an icepack to the outside of the cheek to reduce swelling.
Toothaches and Dental Pain
If you have just woken up in the middle of the night with a sharp pain in your mouth, you may have a root canal or similar dental concern. Sometimes relieving dental pain can be as simple as flossing gently around the area to remove trapped objects or debris. Because everything from tooth sensitivity to cavities or a root canal can cause a toothache, it is best to schedule a checkup at the dentist to discern the cause for dental pain.
What To Do
If you have had a dental accident or injury, there are a few steps you can take right away to alleviate dental pain as you seek the help of your local dentist. Rinse the mouth gently with warm water to clean the area and do not touch the injury or apply medicine directly to the site, as medicines such as aspirin can burn the gums. Apply an icepack to the outside of the cheeks to reduce swelling while you make your way to the dentist.
