If you have ever suffered from a toothache, then you know it can be a royal pain. Knowing how to treat a toothache can help you relieve pain until you are able to come in for help. Here at Shiva Hogugi, DDS in West Bloomfield, Michigan, our team is happy to talk to you about toothaches and how to treat them.
When it comes to a toothache, the first thing to remember to do is to visit your dentist, Dr. Shiva Hogugi as soon as possible, to get it properly diagnosed and treated before further damage or problems can occur. It is also important to wash and rinse your mouth in case seeds or other small debris are caught in your gums or between your teeth. You can also try flossing to clean the area.
Another tip when it comes to handling a toothache is to try a cool compress on your cheek near a toothache. This can help dull the pain to help you get through your day. You can also try an over-the-counter medication to help with swelling and pain until you can come in for your visit.
