In the meantime there are things you can do to temporarily treat your tooth pain or injury.
Tooth Pain: Rinse your mouth with warm water, the gently use dental floss to check and remove food and debris that may be stuck between your teeth. Take aspirin or acetaminophen to relieve the pain.
Cracked Tooth: Symptoms are usually characterized as a sharp pain to the tooth when pressure is applied (biting down or chewing). It is recommended that you rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area and apply a cold compress to the mouth to reduce swelling.
Broken Tooth: Wash out your mouth with warm water, and if there is bleeding in the area, apply a gauze until the bleeding stops. If there is swelling and pain, apply a cold compress.
Tooth pain, in any form, is a sign of a potentially serious problem. These problems can range from dental infections and diseases to throat cancer. If you are in pain, make sure to make an appointment with a dentist immediately.
