When Should You See a Dentist?
Keep in mind that while these remedies can work magic for pain and inflammation, they don’t treat the root causes of your symptoms. If you believe you’ve broken a tooth, have a cavity, infection, or other dental problem, be sure to contact a dentist. If you’re experiencing fever, facial swelling, or constant pain and don’t have access to a dentist, visit an emergency room for treatment.
It can be stressful to see a dentist, but they’re masters at treating your toothaches and pain. They’re doctors, and they’ve got your back for your dental health.
Don’t be afraid to try these remedies at home and together to provide the maximum amount of relief. Cold compresses, clove oil, salt-water rinses, and over-the-counter medication can all work together to temporarily fight pain and inflammation from your toothache.
