MY TOOTH IS KILLING ME!
Hopefully this won't ever happen to you, but if it does follow these tips:
- Call your dentist as soon as possible for an appointment.
- Apply oil of cloves to the affected tooth. You can ask you pharmacist for this.
- Apply ice to the affected area.
- Take whatever you normally take for a headache to ease the pain (as directed-never take more than the label saysÉeven over the counter medicines can be dangerous if taken improperly-even deadly!!!!).
The best treatment is to let your dentist help you right away. Teeth don't heal themselves. Sometimes a person will have a toothache for 2-3 days and it will "go-away". Don't be fooled! The problem is still there. Remember seeing your dentist early can prevent pain, expense and maybe tooth loss!
