Tooth Pain in Hales Corners WI
A painful toothache could indicate an abscess or other infection in the mouth. Please call our office right away from an appointment. Here are tips to help manage pain until your appointment.
- Rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out.
- Gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between the teeth.
- Avoid very hot and cold foods and beverages.
- Apply a cold compress on the outside of the cheek. If the face is swollen, apply a cold compress alternating 10 minutes on, 5 minutes off.
- You may or may not notice a small, raised bump around the tooth in your gums. This can indicated an abscessed tooth. Do NOT try and squeeze or pop the abscess.
Always check with your dentist or physician if you have questions about which medications you can and cannot take.
- Do not put aspirin on the aching tooth or gum tissues.
