Toothache

Begin by cleaning carefully around the sore tooth. Using warm salt water, rinse the mouth to displace any food trapped around or between teeth. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you place aspirin on your child’s aching tooth or on the gum. In the event of facial swelling, apply a cold compress to the area. For temporary pain relief, acetaminophen (Tylenol) is recommended. Contact our office for an appointment as soon as possible.
