Tooth Abscess Relief

Blog Categories

Developing a dental abscess can be extremely painful.

It is vital that the ailment is treated by a professional, otherwise, severe complications can arise. If you suspect that you have developed an abscess anywhere in the mouth then do contact the clinic immediately for advice and treatment.

Temporary Tooth Abscess Relief

Temporary relief for an abscess while seeking emergency dental assistance could come in the form of:

  1.  Taking an over the counter painkiller. Ibuprofen is the best option as this fights inflammation. However, not everyone is able to take this medication so do check with your GP or pharmacist first. If this is not an option for you then paracetamol is a good alternative. Again, ensure that it is safe for you to take this medication first.
  2.  Rinsing the mouth out with salt water can help to relieve the pain and stop further bacteria developing.
  3.  It is best to avoid really hot or cold foods if you find they are making the pain worse. Cool or lukewarm food and drink are probably best. Also, try and chew on the opposite side to the affected area.
  4.  Brush very gently around the abscessed area. A softer bristled brush may be kinder and gentler until the abscess has been treated.

Please note that all these tips are not to replace seeking professional help. This should be sought immediately. In the meantime, the above may help you to manage the pain.
