If you’re looking for ways to relieve your toothache, our Lansdowne Dental Arts team is thrilled to help you! There are many things you can do to finally treat the problem and receive the comfort you desire; those things are:

-Step No. 1: Thoroughly rinse your mouth with warm salt water. This will help clean your smile, eliminate bacteria and infection, and reduce swelling. To make the salt water, all you need to do is mix a half a teaspoon of salt with a cup of warm water.

-Step No. 2: Use dental floss to remove any food particle that is lodged between your teeth.

-Step No. 3: If you have any swelling in the mouth, ice the area with an ice pack. Doing so will help you reduce swelling and relieve the pain.

-Step No. 4: Please do not put aspirin or any other pain medication directly onto the gums surrounding the tooth. Doing so will burn the gum tissue. If you need to relieve the pain, just swallow the pills instead.

-Step No. 5: If these tips do not work or if your toothache does not go away within a couple days, please visit your dentist.

If you take these five steps, you will be on the right track toward taking care of and treating your toothache in Leesburg, Virginia.
