Toothaches are not fun. Anyone who has had one knows it can be the most unbearable pain. When you are experiencing a toothache there are several things you should do. First, don’t ignore it! Thinking “well maybe it will go away by morning” should never be an option. Always call the dentist! Schedule yourself for an emergency visit. Having a toothache could be associated with many things including wisdom teeth pain, tooth decay, need for tooth extraction, and root canal, just to name a few. The list of other reasons goes on and on. Treating the underlying reason of why the pain is happening should be your first concern. Leaving a dental condition untreated is only going to become more expensive and more invasive with time. It’s a good idea to call your treating dentist immediately to see what toothache remedies could be recommended until you are able to see them.
