There are lots of reasons why toothache happens and you should see a dentist immediately. There are ways to ease the pain until a dentist can examine your teeth and gums.
- Stop smoking as this can worsen dental problems.
- Dental injuries or swollen gums may benefit from a cold compress held against the cheek.
- Herbal remedies may help (cloves, thyme, peppermint, garlic)
Prolonged toothache (two days) means you should see a dentist as soon as possible.
"If dental pain is not treated straight away, it might lead to more serious problems, such as gum disease or a dental abscess."
