Unbearable Tooth Pain: Emergency Management Strategies

woman with tooth painAs one of the most common oral health conditions dentists see, tooth pain can stem from various reasons, such as dental injuries, infections, abscesses or advanced tooth decay. Regardless of the cause, severe tooth pain can be unbearable and significantly impact your quality of life.

When you experience intense tooth pain, seeking immediate dental attention is essential to address the underlying issue.

Here are some ways to address your discomfort:

Seek Over-the-Counter Relief

While waiting to see your dentist, over-the-counter pain medications like paracetamol can provide temporary relief from tooth pain. These medications can help reduce inflammation and alleviate discomfort. However, it’s crucial to remember that they only mask the symptoms and do not treat the root cause of the problem.

Seeking Professional Dental Care

Contact Your Dentist

If you’re experiencing severe tooth pain, the first step should be to contact your dental practice immediately.

Give us a call and explain the severity of your pain, and our dentist can offer guidance until you can be seen.

Visit the Emergency Room

In some cases, tooth pain can become so excruciating that waiting for a dental appointment is impossible. If you find yourself in this situation, especially during the night or on weekends, visiting the emergency room may be your best option. While emergency room staff cannot treat the underlying dental issue, they can provide stronger pain relief medications to help you manage the discomfort until you can see a dentist.
