If it is a serious emergency…dial 911 or get to an emergency room immediately.
Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth.
Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin is very acidic and can actually burn your gum tissue.
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amount of time designing a treatment plan for you that will help you to offset the possibility of unforeseen pain or tooth breakage. Completion of your treatment plan and subsequent regular cleanings and checkups greatly minimize emergencies in the future.
