5 Ways to Ease Toothache
Why am I experiencing such excruciating pain?What usually happens is that the enamel surface of a tooth is compromised and infectious agents are able to make their way inside of the tooth. As white blood cells try to fight the infection, they break down and die, pus begins to accumulate but the body continues to send more blood. The pressure within the blood vessel increases and so the vessel must expand to manage this pressure which, in turn, puts incredible stress on the nerve inside of your tooth. This results in the agonising pain that’s experienced from a toothache.
How can I ease my pain and discomfort?You don’t have to suffer for days on end, as there are a number of effective ways to ease the pain and discomfort of a toothache:
Warm, salty water
Soothe with ice cubes
Anti-inflammatory & analgesic medicines
