Toothache at home

Toothache at home

1. Whatever causes it don’t do it. Hurts to bite – don’t bite – buy a mouthguard – heat it first, cut away the area on the guard for the tooth that hurts, wear it all the time so no contact on tooth.
2. Take pain killers aspirin, tylenol, advil, aleve.
3. Cold hurts – place warm, if hot hurts – place cold.
4. Go to emergency – Hamilton General Hospital has dentist on call, so call them first.
5. For Dr. Al, my cell phone is on the office voicemail – call me.
