Tooth Pain

Toothache can be an uncomfortable to a severe, sharp and throbbing pain and you should consult your dentist as soon as possible to have your toothache treated.

Painkillers can help to relieve the pain in the interim, but it is important to treat the cause of the pain rather than mask the symptoms.


  • Alongside the pain of toothache, you are likely to experience swelling of the gums or face and sensitivity to hot and cold food and drink

How can I stop Toothache

Good oral hygiene is key. Keep your teeth and gums healthy by making sure you brush your teeth twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste and use dental floss and mouthwash regularly. Avoid eating between meals, particularly sweet foods and make sure you are booked in for a regular dental check up at least once a year.
