If you are injured, and have a broken tooth or any other dental emergency, the most important thing is to see a dentist as soon as possible to try to save your existing tooth and take care of your pain. If you are experiencing tooth pain, you can floss around the tooth that is in pain to remove food that is possibly causing the pain, use a cold compress to help with swelling and rinse your mouth with warm salt water. If the pain does not go away, it’s important to see your dentist as soon as possible to find out the cause of the pain.

Tooth pain is an easy thing to try to ignore until it gets to be unbearable. Rather than waiting until the pain is at its’ worst, it’s a good idea to get into the dentist soon to diagnose the problem before it gets worse. Putting off a dental visit to diagnose the problem can cost you more money and pain in the long run. Taking care of dental problems right away is the best way to maintain a healthy smile!
