Decatur Family DentistryTooth Pain Treatment

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 can actually harm your gum tissue.

There are many methods for relieving oral pain. They include:● Ice packs on the affected area.● Avoiding hard candy or ice.● Avoiding sleeping on your stomach.
Dentists use a wide array of pain management tools, including:● Anesthetics such as Novocaine.● Analgesics such as aspirin or ibuprofen.● Sedatives, including a procedure known as "conscious sedation" or general sedation (also known as "deep sedation").
