Hi everyone, welcome to another entry in our blog! Hope you are having a nice weekend of rest, I am sure we all need it. Today I want to share some tips on what to do when your tooth aches. You know, that suddenly pain we all get at one point in our lives. One minute we are enjoying a nice ice cream or a delicious hot beverage and in the next we are holding our cheeks from excruciating pain.
First of all, although it is a very unpleasant feeling, do not panic. Many patients tend to lose their cool when they get that painful stingy feeling. That leads to panic attacks or even resource to do some stupid things and remedies. This can be dangerous because you can do more harm than good in that situation. You won’t believe how many patient have extracted their own teeth without any need for that and get bad infections and such.
So keep your cool, and try to endure the pain as much as possible. To alleviate the pain you can apply some ice. Keep in mind to wrap the ice with a cloth or a towel and apply it to your cheeks. Never apply ice directly to your tooth as it will be a pretty bad experience. Our teeth possess many nerves and although they are really resistant, they are really sensitive, especially to temperatures. This should help to mitigate the tooth ache.
You can however use painkillers and other meds but be aware that you will need a prescription for most of them. It is dangerous to self medicate so be really careful with that. Always consult your doctor before taking any pills. Also, try to avoid applying hot in the area. Another cool trick is to exercise or meditate to distract you for the pain. It is difficult to do, but totally worth it if you are able to do so
