How to Treat a Toothache

Toothaches are painful, inconvenient, and bothersome. If you are currently suffering from this nuisance, our [practice_name] team has some tips for you! There are things you can do to relieve your toothache, and those things are:

-Step No. 1: Thoroughly rinse your mouth with warm water. Swish it around for about a minute or so.

-Step No. 2: The ache might be caused by food that is stuck between your teeth. So, use floss and clean between each crevice of your smile.

-Step No. 3: If your mouth is swollen, reduce the swelling with an ice pack. Place the pack outside the area for 30-minute intervals.

-Step No. 4: Please feel free to take over-the-counter pain medications to relieve your pain. However, please do not put the medication directly against the gums above the aching tooth because it may burn the gum tissue.

-Step No. 5: If these tips do not help you and the ache continues for a couple of days, please do your best to see your dentist as soon as possible. There may be a major dental issue causing the problem.
