If you are looking to treat your toothache, you have come to the right place! A toothache can be treated, especially if you know the cause. To help you with any toothache troubles you have, our dentist, Dr. Gilbert Omido with Gilbert Omido DDS, P.A. in Wichita, Kansas, is happy to provide you some tips!
A toothache is a serious condition and is a warning sign to you that something is not right. When a toothache triggers, the first thing to do is to stay calm and not panic. Secondly, you can try some over-the-counter medicines to help you get through your day. Another step you can take to treat your toothache is to try an ice pack to numb the pain, especially if there is swelling. For others, a heat compress can also do the trick. Whichever you choose, remember to only apply the ice or heat for a few minutes at a time.
When you have a toothache, it is vital to make sure you are maintaining good dental hygiene. Flossing, for example, might solve your aching tooth problem if a seed or food-particle is stuck between your teeth and gums. Always keep the area of your aching tooth clean, so it can provide relief to your pain and promote the process of healing.
