Emergency dental care is an incredibly important service, one that we strive to make available to our patients. We are grateful to our committed and experienced staff for their flexibility with the schedule and wiliness to take add on patients to an already busy schedule and get the patient taken care of.
Toothaches are very painful, so much so that it can even hinder you from getting you to your local dentist who can solve the problem. We understand this, so we wanted to provide some quick pain relief techniques using natural remedies to hold the pain at bay until you can get help. These are helpful because many of the items used to provide the relief can be found in most every household.
Before we do this however, note that these pain relief techniques are only temporary and are in no way a substitute for seeking dental advice or help.
Salt and hot water has long been known to provide relief for toothaches. This solution will draw out the fluids from the gums that are causing the irritation and help reduce the aching sensation.
Mixing a single tablespoon (1 tbsp) of salt in a glass of hot or warm water and then rinsing/gargling will provide some relief, which can be repeated if necessary.
