For a Toothache
Clean your mouth out by rinsing thoroughly with warm water. Gently floss around the tooth to remove any food particles that may be trapped between your teeth or just under your gum line. If your tooth continues to hurt, call our office as soon as possible.
For a Chipped or Broken Tooth
Save the tooth’s pieces and rinse them and your mouth with warm water. If they’re dirty, place them in a towel or dishcloth in a sink (so the pieces don’t fall into the drain), and gently rinse them. Then place the pieces in a small container and cover them with milk, water with a pinch of salt, or your saliva and call our office.
Lost Filling or Crown
You can temporarily relieve the pain at the exposed part of your tooth by using clove oil (available over-the-counter). Dip a cotton swab in the oil and apply it to the exposed part of your tooth. Putting an ice pack on your face over the area that hurts may also relieve the pain.
If you’ve been suffering from a toothache or oral pain for more than a few days, you need to call us now at 408.923.5511. Toothaches can often be a sign of a more serious dental condition, such as tooth decay or an abscess, which can have serious consequences if left untreated.
