Throbbing toothache pain for anyone can be absolutely intolerable. At the very least, milder toothache pain can cause you to avoid certain foods.
If you are suffering from tooth pain or another urgent dental need, you might need emergency dental care. Since patients are our top priority at Montz & Maher Dental Group in Friendswood, we want you to call right away if you have a toothache.
The most frequent causes of a toothache include
- Knocked Out Tooth – Knocking out the permanent teeth is a dental emergency we frequently see in Friendswood. If possible, save the tooth and wash it gently. Be careful not to touch the tooth roots. It is best to place the tooth back in its socket. Hold it firmly in place with a warm, wet rag. If putting your tooth back into its socket is not an option for you, place the tooth in a container of milk. Then, give us a call to schedule your emergency dentistry appointment. When you visit our office, be sure to bring your tooth with you.
- Bitten Tongue or Lip – Patients who experience this dental emergency should clean the area and use a cold compress to soothe swelling. Call us to make an appointment if you feel that the area needs an examination. For bleeding that does not stop, contact us right away.
- Foreign Object Stuck Between Teeth – When you cannot remove an object or particle of food from between your teeth with brushing and flossing, you may be experiencing a minor dental emergency. DO NOT try to remove the object with a sharp tool. Call us to schedule an appointment so that we can use the proper tools to carefully remove the object.
- Severe Tooth Pain or Toothache – There’s no need to struggle silently with tooth pain when your reliable emergency dentist is just a call away! If your tooth is throbbing, aching, or experiencing heightened sensitivity, you may be suffering from a serious infection. Call us right away to discuss your symptoms and schedule an appointment for your dental emergency.
The best way to avoid toothache pain is to visit your dentist often, and to care properly for your teeth including a daily regimen of brushing and flossing. Also, remember that teeth are not tools- use a bottle opener or scissors for that pesky packaging.
