Get Quick Help & Lasting Fixes for a Toothache

It’s not exactly an occasion for throwing a party, but February 9 is National Toothache Day. The best way we can think of to celebrate is to remind you of fixes for a toothache. 

At our office, we can stop toothache pain by:

  • Repairing Cavities – Depending on the degree of damage, we can fix your cavity with a metal-free filling, a partial crown, or a same-day dental crown. 
  • Mending Breaks and Cracks – If your tooth is cracked or broken, it’s important to fix it ASAP to keep bacteria from getting inside your tooth. Unlike most dental practices, we can make a crown for you in a single appointment using a state-of-the-art CEREC system. 
  • Removing Infection – When infection gets into your tooth’s interior, it can cause serious pain. It also puts you at risk of losing your tooth. Your dentist can perform a root canal using the latest technology to save your tooth. 
  • Addressing Teeth Grinding – If you grind your teeth, you may experience a toothache – along with headaches and facial pain. In addition, grinding can wear down your teeth or cause chips, cracks, or breaks. Your dentist can fit you for a custom-made mouthguard that will stop the grinding and relieve your pain. 

We’ll get you an appointment as soon as possible if you are hurting. It’s important to contact us ASAP. Left untreated, many common causes of toothache can worsen – necessitating more involved and costly procedures to return your smile to health. 

In the meantime, there are many ways you can ease your discomfort at home. Watch this short video for some good suggestions. Among the easiest and most effective options: over-the-counter pain relievers (especially ibuprofen, which is an anti-inflammatory medication) and cold compresses.
