Get Rid of Your Toothache, Fast!

dental tech

If you’re suffering from a toothache, contact 7 Oaks Laser Dental Centre in Abbotsford as soon as possible – your tooth may be abscessed and require emergency dental care. Come in to 7 Oaks Laser Dental Centre to avoid complications such as surgery or a tooth extraction if you experience any type of toothache.

The good news is, there are some tried and true toothache pain relief methods and here they are, brought to you by the caring team of oral health care experts at 7 Oaks Laser Dental Centre.

  • Cold Compress

Applying a cold compress to your jaw should alleviate a toothache. The cold reduces blood flow to the site and therefore reduces swelling and pain. Apply a cold compress as often as necessary until the pain subsides.

  • Pain Medication

Pain medication can help relieve a toothache but be sure not to exceed the recommended dose. Pain relievers such as aspirin and Advil typically contain anti-inflammatory medicine which can reduce the pain and swelling associated with a toothache.

  • Warm Salt Water and Baking Soda 

Salt and Baking Soda combine to make an excellent anti-bacterial mouth-rise that can help reduce the amount of bacteria in your mouth and potentially reduce the swelling and pain that stems from a toothache.

  • Clove Oil and Garlic 

Pure clove oil, available in most drugstores, can act as a numbing agent if applied directly to the tooth. Don’t apply to the gums or apply too much as clove oil can be poisonous in too-high quantities. If you don’t want to use clove oil, a clove of garlic is an excellent substitute – simply hold it against the tooth for a few minutes and rinse with warm water afterward.

  • Teabag Therapy 

Teas such as black and green teas are high in tannins, which are known to reduce swelling and help your blood to clot and therefore improve healing. Microwave the teabag in a small dish filled with water for about 30 seconds or until warm, squeeze the excess water and bite down on the teabag, holding it against your tooth/gum.

However, remember that any toothache is a bad toothache so contact 7 Oaks Laser Dental Centre in Abbotsford for an appointment as soon as possible.

WHAT IS THE ITERO® ELEMENT™ INTRAORAL SCANNER?

The iTero Element Scanner is a digital impression system that allows your local dentist to forgo messy putty in your mouth. We can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.

NO GOOP. NO GAG. NO WORRIES.

During the impression process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question. We can use the scanner for new patient, hygiene and Invisalign appointments.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

  • Eliminates the need to retake impressions.
  • Fast and accurate.
  • No unpleasant taste or smell.
  • See a simulation of your potential post-treatment smile.

BOOK YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH OUR ITERO ELEMENT SCANNER

The iTero element scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Please feel free to ask us any questions about iTero, online or on the phone.

We look forward to seeing you!
