Toothache

Toothaches are normally worse at night as everything becomes quiet and all you have to concentrate on is that pain. As you lie down and try to go to sleep the blood rushes to your head and stimulates the pain receptors in the area causing more pain.

There are many types of remedies that people try to use to relieve the pain such as hot packs, cold packs, tooth drops, salt water and mouth washes. Unfortunately, you will have to try these and see which one works best for you.

Painkillers can also be useful. You will have to read the directions and warnings on the packets to see which painkiller is suitable for you, or speak to a pharmacist. Most importantly, make an appointment to see your Firstbite dentist immediately to deal with the problem.
