Dental Health : How to Ease a Toothache Until Your Dentist Appointment


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.

  1. gel applications for dental pain????? irreversible pulpitis would never respond to gel applications, even acute pain doesnt. the information shes giving is very misleading and totally incorrect.

  2. ORAJEL and Ibuprofen? WOW who the F didn't already know this??
       Most people don't know this and this woman didn't mention it. But if your gum is infected which you'll know from the pain and of course the swollen gum, Gargle with hot salty water. Hot as in it's as hot as I can stand it. It will sting more in one spot and that's what you want! This is the draw spot. It will draw out the infection without antibiotics. Works 100% of the time. This is not for a tooth ache but a lot of people will mix the two up. Gargle every 2 hours Until that spot that stung so bad no longer hurts. 1-3 days depending on how well you did it. You'll start to feel better on the first round and by the next morning you'll feel almost no pain. Very important gargle right before bed and do not rinse out the salt after gargling. Yeah it's nasty but you want to feel better. You can drink a little water to clean off your tongue cause the sting spot will be up on the gum line. Some times it will be on the opposite gum. Yes you can eat if you feel like it.
