Are you suffering from a toothache? If so, our dentist, Dr. Krupakar Reddy Yeturu, would like to help you. Toothaches can be quite painful and inconvenient. Sometimes toothaches can be caused by simple things, like having something stuck between the teeth, or they can be caused by more dangerous things, like a cavity or infection. It’s best to try and treat your toothache as soon as possible. You can do so by doing the following things:

-Brush and floss (If something is stuck between your teeth or along the gums, brushing and flossing can remove it.)

-Swish with saltwater (This can help remove irritating debris, reduce swelling and clean infected areas.)

-Ice the tooth (Icing outside the area can help reduce swelling and pain.)

-Rinse hydrogen peroxide (Make sure to dilute the peroxide with water. Rinsing with this liquid can help kill infection and relieve pain.)

-Take medication (Over-the-counter pain medication can help you find the comfort you need.)

-Schedule an appointment (If these treatments don’t help you, it’s best to visit your dentist. A dangerous issue could be causing the problem.)
