Toothache will usually have you reaching for the phone to make an appointment with your local Station House Dental & Implant Clinic dentist. It may be a sharp pain or a dull ache, and can sometimes be accompanied by a headache or fever. It’s unpleasant and uncomfortable, and usually needs professional attention straight away. Toothache may be a sign of infected gums, tooth decay, abscesses or fractures.
How do I treat toothache?
Unfortunately, toothache won’t go away by itself. If you are experiencing pain or inflammation, it’s important to make an appointment to see your Portman dentist straight away. If the pain is severe, you should book an emergency dental appointment.
During your appointment your Glossop dentist will talk through your symptoms, provide a thorough examination and advise on the best treatment for the cause. You can take steps to prevent tooth decay by eating a low-sugar diet, keeping a good oral care routine by brushing and flossing twice a day, and going for regular check ups.
