When experiencing toothache, it is better to be safe than sorry. The ‘I’ll wait and see what happens’ attitude could be a costly one. When you experience toothache you should rinse your mouth in warm water and gentle floss around the tooth to ensure there’s nothing stuck between your teeth.
Do not put any sort of painkiller against the gum near the aching tooth because it could burn the gum tissue. If the pain persists, call the dentist.
