A toothache can indicate a range of possible dental concerns. An over the counter pain medication may help to ease the pain. Anything directly to the affected tooth should not be applied.
Object Caught In Teeth
In the event of food particles or an object between teeth, the use of dental floss is advisable. Any sharp object or anything other than dental floss should not be used to avoid damaging the teeth or gums.
If a child has a very loose primary (baby) tooth,it should be gently removed to avoid inhaling or swallowing the tooth. If an older child has a loose permanent tooth as a result of an accident, a dental clinic should be immediately consulted for instruction on how to proceed.
If a tooth is accidentally knocked out, contact a dental clinic immediately for advice on how to proceed and possibly save the tooth. In the event of tooth damage, contact Bhardwaj Dental Clinic immediately for instruction on how to proceed.
