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.
Emergency Dentists Say These are the 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:
- 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.
Causes of a Toothache
Toothaches can be caused by a number of conditions. The most common causes include:
- Cavities / tooth decay
- Abscessed tooth (a pocket of puss caused by an infection)
- Infection of the tooth root or gums
- Chipped or fractured teeth
- Damaged fillings
- Persistent teeth grinding (bruxism)

I have moderate dental anxiety and started seeing Dr. Evans at her Gainesville practice two years ago. Last year, my family and I moved out of state, but because of the quality of Dr. Evans' care, her concern for my anxiety, and her commitment to exceptional service from start to finish, I now drive six hours from North Carolina just to be seen and treated by Dr. Evans. Yeah, she's that good. read lessJessica C.27/07/16

They have a curtious staff who is very knowledgeable in what they do. Unlike other experiances elsewhere they made me feel like a part of the group keeping me informed at all times of what was going on. This has been my only visit but I'd recommend them . read lesskasey M.09/07/19
