How You Deal With Tooth Pain (And Our Responses)

Everyone experiences and deals with pain differently. As a result, when tooth pain affects your smile, you may happen to follow a path toward a solution that we would highly recommend. Or, you might do things counter to the ideal method we might suggest. To get a quick and thorough glimpse at common ways of reacting to pain, what we think about the way you manage it, and (of course) our highlight the best approach, let us share with you. If you have any questions or think it’s probably time we see your smile, then by all means, please contact us!

You Do Everything You Can To Ignore It

Are you someone who takes a “grin and bear it” approach to pain because, in your book, being able to ignore discomfort is a source of pride? While we cannot argue that it’s good to have an impressive threshold and means of managing discomfort, we can remind you that tooth pain is not something to be ignored. We always suggest you contact us the moment serious pain affects you because ignoring it can yield significant complications.

You Take Pain Relievers And Hope For The Best

Yes, when you take pain relievers, you make the tooth pain go away. What you don’t notice, perhaps, is that while the pain is temporarily relieved, the problem that’s leading to that sensation is still present. We don’t suggest relying solely on this reaction to pain. You’re more than welcome to use medication to feel better but you still need to come in to our practice for help!

You Research It And Try To Figure Out DIY Solutions

You might take it upon yourself to hop online, call friends, and try to get to the bottom of your tooth pain. Then, once you think you’ve diagnosed yourself, you may try to figure out do-it-yourself (DIY) solutions that will allow you to get out of pain. We don’t give this solution our approval either. It’s very easy to misdiagnose yourself and attempting to treat your own smile is very dangerous!
