Dental Trauma with Tooth Pain Requires First-Aid While Seeking Dental Care

Sports injuries and household accidents can often cause a serious blow to the face. When this happens the physical damage to the tooth might not be immediately obvious. There have been several cases where the root, pulp, or nerve of a tooth has been distressed without any noticeable changes in the outer tooth enamel.

In a situation like this some simple first-aid measures can help manage the pain while you seek professional treatment at Dr. [doctor_name]’s dental office in [city], [state]. If the dental trauma has left blood and debris in your mouth, you can rinse it away with lukewarm saltwater. If you are experiencing swelling in your lip or cheek, you can hold a cold compress to your face for 15 minutes at a time.

You could also try gently rubbing a little oral analgesic on your gums or taking an over the counter anti-inflammatory medication. This might help reduce the pain while you make your way to our dental office. In many of these cases, we may need to perform a root canal. This will remove the damaged tissues along with the tooth enamel layer of the damaged tooth. Our team will then rebuild the structure of the tooth to prepare it for a dental crown.

If you live in [city], [state], and you’re suffering with a toothache, you should not delay in calling [phone] to seek treatment at [practice_name].
