Toothache can be one of the most painful experiences.

Gums or periodontal infection can be the site of the pain.

Wisdom teeth can be painful as they emerge. The pain can also be coming from the nerve of the tooth – usually bacteria have reached the pulp.

A cracked tooth can also be painful.

The sooner you can be seen by a dentist the better. If we are closed however, here is some EMERGENCY DENTAL ADVICE . Use painkillers as directed on the packet until you can be seen.

Drugs are the last on the list because they are the last option in dealing with dental pain. Your dentist will advise on the best dental treatment so that you do not need to take drugs. However, drugs can be very helpful in combination with proper dental treatment.

Pain Relief Medication: Assuming there are no medical reasons that you cannot take certain medications, this regime can help.

Antibiotics: Should only be considered when there are signs and symptoms other than pain, ie redness, swelling, fever or feeling ill. Your dentist will prescribe as required.
