Symptoms of a toothache

If you’re not sure if the pain you are feeling is caused by a toothache, review these common toothache symptoms:
  • Oral pain in and around a tooth. It may be a throbbing or a constant pain
  • Teeth/gums that are sensitive to the touch
  • Swollen gums/cheek
  • Bad taste in the mouth may be caused by an infection
  • Fever
  • Headache

What to do when you get a toothache

If you’re not able to get to the dentist in time, you may have to try some DIY relief techniques. We recommend the following home remedies for your toothache:
  • Rinse and clean the area around the sore tooth using warm salt water.
  • If you experience swelling, apply a cold compress to your cheek (a bag of ice wrapped in a towel, for example).
  • Take acetaminophen as instructed for temporary pain relief.
  • DO NOT physically apply aspirin to an aching tooth or gum. Doing this will cause the acidity of the aspirin to damage your gum.
  • See a dentist as soon as possible.
