Toothaches

Toothaches
Toothaches are no joke.  If your child experiences toothache, this may indicate serious problems.  Please, call my office to make an appointment so we may reserve the most convenient time for an appointment.  If toothaches are left untreated, more serious problems may occur.

I recommend doing mouth rinses with water and salt for your child’s toothache.  In addition, make sure to gently floss your child’s teeth to procure no food particles are trapped between the teeth.  If swollen, apply a cold cloth to minimize swelling.

In case your child feels pain, make sure to give your child acetaminophen to alleviate the pain.  Do not put aspirin on the tooth because this will not alleviate the pain.  Instead, it may cause gum irritation and burning.[1]
