Hi, so you have a screaming toothache? Well,
I’m here to tell you on how you can prevent a toothache until you see your general dentist.
My name’s Michelle, and I’m a Dental Assistant with Solutionz. And mainly, a couple of reasons
as far as how to prevent a toothache until you can see your general dentist is you want
to go ahead and purchase maybe some over-the-counter oral numbing medicine, and such as Orajel.
What that will do is you just place the gel on your gums, and on the tooth area where
you’re having the ache from. That will numb the is, the area for a few minutes; bout’
thirty to forty five minutes, and then then you would want to keep reapplying throughout
the day. You also might want to go ahead and take some over-the-counter medication as far
as like Tylenol, Advil, Ibuprofen. Advil or Ibuprofen is best because it has a anti-inflammatory
in it, which will help with any inflammation that you might have in that area. But until
you can see your general dentist, those are the things you want to do, but you definitely
do want to go see your dentist afterwards, so therefore, he would be able to determine
what type of toothache you’re having; if it’s a gum problem or if it’s an actual tooth problem,
and he would be able to take care of it from there. Once again, my name’s Michelle, and
I just explained to you on how to prevent a toothache until you see your general dentist.
