At The Dental Retreat we understand that toothaches or sustaining a dental injury is not a pleasant feeling for anyone. However seeking emergency dental treatment to ease your discomfort could provide relief of pain in most instances and prevent the spread of infection to its surrounding teeth and gums.
Toothaches or dental trauma can be from a chipped or broken tooth, sporting injuries or accidents, decayed teeth, gum infections, treatment for bad breath or cracked teeth from night grinding. We prioritise each case and perform procedures like fillings, tooth extractions, root canal treatment, replacing a dental crown, splints or other procedures to alleviate pain and existing discomfort in emergencies.
The common reason for toothaches are dental decay or caries left untreated. Other reasons include broken tooth, leaking old fillings, infected gums, abscess and grinding of teeth which could lead to cracks developing on teeth. Sometimes the pain can be quite uncomfortable and could affect your daily routine and sleep. If you have signs of sensitivity or toothache it may be wise consulting your dentist to find if there are any underlying issues like tooth decay or gum infection.
Constant throbbing pain, disturbed sleeps due to toothaches, pain while having cold or hot drinks/food, swelling of gums and bad or unpleasant tastes or fever associated with toothache. If you have any of the mentioned signs, emergency treatment may be necessary, please seek a consultation with your dentist who could determine the cause of pain and provide treatment.
You could take anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen, rinse with warm salt water or a mouth wash until you can see your dentist. We would also recommend brushing and flossing daily and having regular visits to your dentist for your 6 monthly checkup visits.
A severe toothache will require an emergency dental visit. Your emergency dentist at The Dental Retreat could help address the cause of your toothache and get you pain-free as soon as possible.
