How To Reduce ToothacheMany patients ask how to reduce toothache until they can seek emergency dental treatment. Below are some steps you can follow to help manage the pain of a toothache while you arrange treatment. It is important to note that this type of management is not a substitute for professional help. The steps below are given as a temporary measure while you seek proper investigation and treatment.

How To Reduce Toothache

  1. Applying a cold compress to the area can help to numb the pain. Keep the compress on for around twenty minutes then break for the same amount of time. Keeping it on for too long can cause mild damage to the skin and blood vessels. Never apply ice directly to the skin. Always wrap in a cloth or towel before use.
  2. Using over the counter painkillers are a good way of temporarily stemming the pain. Ibuprofen and paracetamol are usually the most popular options. Taking these medications will be dependent on whether you are safe to do so. Your pharmacist will be able to help you with this.
  3. It is also possible to purchase numbing gel or cream from a pharmacist. This product contains a small amount of local anaesthetic which will help to reduce the discomfort. Children under the age of twelve should not use this type of product.
  4. Clove oil is a naturally occurring anaesthetic. Applying a small amount of this oil to cotton wool then placing inside the mouth on the affected area can help relieve toothache symptoms.
  5. Finally, ensure that you seek professional dental advice as soon as possible. It is important that issues like this are dealt with straight away to ensure the best possible outcome.
