Do you have a screaming toothache and you
just don’t know what to do? Well my name is Michelle and I’m a dental assistant with Solutionz
and don’t worry I’m here to explain to you on what you can do for your severe toothache.
First of all you would need to go see your general dentist immediately if you have a
toothache and therefore he would be able to prescribe you maybe a higher pain medication
and get you on antibiotics to prevent any further infection but if you are having the
toothache over the weekend and you just can’t get in to see your dentist then what you can
do at home is you can actually purchase Ora Gel. It’s an over-the-counter numbing medication
that you would place on the tooth and around the gum. This will kind of numb the area for
a good 20 to 30 minutes and kind of give you some pain relief for that period of time.
Also too you can take what we call Advil and Ibuprofen. Advil and Ibuprofen is a great
pain reliever to take because it has the anti-inflammatory so it will help with any inflammation that
you might have starting in that area and then rinsing with warm salt water rinses, it is
great, it soothes the area, the salt will actually kind of help clear out any infection
that might be starting around the gums and then the warm water will actually just kind
of sooth it also but definitely you always want to go see your general dentist if you
are having a toothache that is coming and you can already tell you are going to have
and therefore he can prescribe something for you to be able to hold you over the weekend
or until you are actually able to get the tooth fixed. Once again my name is Michelle
and I’m a dental assistant with Solutionz and I just explained to you on what you can
do for a severe toothache.
