What do do with an aching tooth?

If you can’t to get to the dentist immediately, try these remedies!

Take a painkiller – Common pain relief medication such as paracetamol or ibuprofen can help ease the pain. This will provide relief for about 4-6 hours.

Try salt water – A gargle of salt water can help to remove bacteria from the mouth and reduce swelling. Add between a quarter and half a teaspoon of salt to warm water and gargle for at least 20 seconds.

Ice the area – Ice can numb the pain in the area affected. Try this if you have a sore jaw or a toothache; however please be careful not to put it next to your tooth directly or this may lead to more pain.

What causes Toothaches?

There are many reasons for getting a toothache. A visit your dentist will determine the reason, and identify a solution. Some of the reasons for toothache can include:

  • Tooth decay – when a cavity reaches the inner part of the tooth known as the pulp or nerve, a toothache can follow! Sometimes even a small amount of decay may lead to sensitivity.
  • Trauma – when you get a nasty bump on your tooth, it can lead to sensitivity on biting or with temperature changes. It is important visit a dentist immediately in the case of a trauma.
  • Gum disease – if you have gum problems, pain can result due to periodontitis. The bone regresses around your teeth and can lead to aches of the gum.
  • Abscess – a collection of puss is often very painful. Infections like this can spread and must be taken seriously.
  • Wisdom teeth – a common reason for pain at the back of your mouth. Often impacted teeth can lead to food getting stuck around, and this can lead to pain.
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding) – if you grind, your teeth may be worn down enough to reveal your dentine layer. This is the layer which has nerve receptors, often causing pain.
