Is Self-Medicating Dental Pain a Problem?
We have likely all been there at some point in time. A tooth begins to ache, and we pop an over-the-counter pain reliever hoping that it will go away on its own. Is this the best approach? In nearly all instances, the answer is an easy no. This is not the best approach to taking care of our teeth. If you find yourself in discomfort from an oral ailment, then you need to come in and see us. The longer it goes on, the worse the problem can become, and in some instances, that means it could quickly become dangerous.

What Can Leave Your Mouth in Pain?

There are many different things that can leave your mouth in pain. Sometimes you have a cavity forming near the root of your tooth that can hurt. Other times, you may have a chip or a crack in a tooth. Some people get pain that stems from sensitive teeth, while others deal with the pain that comes from enamel that has eroded over time. No matter what has led to your oral pain, it needs treatment. The only way to determine what type of treatment you need is for us to examine your mouth and see what is going on.

Don't just randomly take medication to help manage the pain in your mouth. If you have an appointment to come in and need some relief before we see you, by all means, take some acetaminophen or ibuprofen to help. However, just relying on over-the-counter medications when you have an ache in your mouth is not solving the problem. That's why we are here!

The Danger of Finding Excuses Instead of Flossing
When you find an excuse not to floss, it does a lot of damage to your teeth. Leaving bacteria and debris between your teeth leaves you facing pain, potential tooth decay, and can also lead to gum disease. Instead of ignoring flossing due to it being too time-consuming or you simply not feeling like doing it, start making excuses to do it each day. The better you keep up with flossing, the better your overall oral health has the potential to be. It should be done at least once each day, seven days per week. Call us today to find out more!

Calming Sensitive Teeth Starts with a Visit to Our Office
When you have sensitive teeth, they can be a constant bother or they can be something that bugs you only now and again. No matter which type of sensitive tooth issue you have, one thing that can help manage the discomfort is coming in to see us. We can help protect your teeth, fix any dental issues that could be leading to the sensitivity, and even put sealants on your teeth, which could dull your pain. Come in and see us if your teeth are sensitive to hot, cold, sweets, or even bitter flavors. We can help!
