Having an Emergency?

Waiting for an appointment? Here are some steps to get you out of discomfort.

Rinse with warm saltwater

Dissolve half a teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water and gently swish the solution around your mouth for 30 seconds before spitting it out. This can help to clean the affected area, reduce inflammation, and alleviate some discomfort.

Apply a cold compress

Hold a cold compress or ice pack wrapped in a cloth against the outside of your cheek in the area of the dental problem. This can help to numb the area, reduce swelling, and alleviate pain. Apply the compress for 15-20 minutes at a time, taking breaks in between to prevent frostbite.

Take over-the-counter pain relievers

Use over-the-counter pain medications like ibuprofen or acetaminophen to help manage your discomfort. Follow the instructions on the packaging for the correct dosage, and do not exceed the recommended amount.

Avoid aggravating the area

Try to avoid chewing on the affected side of your mouth and steer clear of hard, crunchy, or sticky foods that may further irritate the problem area. Also, avoid consuming extremely hot or cold beverages, as they may exacerbate the pain.

Keep your head elevated

When resting, keep your head elevated using pillows. This can help to reduce blood flow to the area, which in turn may minimize pain and swelling.

Maintain good oral hygiene

Continue to brush and floss your teeth gently, taking care to avoid the problem area. Keeping your mouth clean can help to prevent any additional infections or complications while you wait for your emergency dental appointment.

Remember, these steps are only temporary measures to help alleviate discomfort. It is important to see Hopetown Dental as soon as possible to address the underlying issue and receive appropriate treatment.
