We’ve all woken up in the middle of the night with an overwhelming toothache. Our first thought is ‘oh no, the dentist!’ and our second thought is ‘how quickly can I get to the dentist to stop the pain’.

What To Do In A Dental Emergency?
Majority of the time when you experience tooth or gum pain there is an underlying problem. It is best to have this treated by a professional at the very first sign of pain.
If you leave it for too long it can worsen over time and a more drastic measure might be required that wasn’t needed previously. Also, if treated early you can almost guarantee that it will be cheaper and less painful; both things are great to hear when heading to the Dentist!
There are a few steps you can take to lessen the pain brought on by a toothache. These are:
- Rinse your mouth out with salty warm tap water
- Gently floss around the painful tooth to remove any leftover food that may be applying pressure to the gums
- Take painkillers for temporary relief
As always, contact Carina Gardens as soon as possible so that we can get you feeling good again. Our aim is to always make you feel comfortable by eliminating the pain first and then fixing the underlying issue.
