Your Riverside dentist knows that experiencing a toothache is never convenient or enjoyable. However, there happen to be those occasions that feel extra inconvenient when it comes to dealing with tooth pain, especially when it surprises you. What should you do in these instances, you ask yourself, and is it possible to receive dental care if the pain is serious? Your dentist has answers to all of the above!

At Work Or Class

You’re at class or at work and suddenly, the familiar pain of a toothache strikes. What to do? Should you run home, you wonder? Is there something to make it feel better? Your Riverside dentist suggests the following: First, call us no matter what. We will help you determine whether you need an emergency visit or just an appointment very soon. Next, avoid using that tooth to eat anything particularly tough. Take an over-the-counter (OTC) pain reliever to ease the discomfort.

Late At Night

It’s late at night, you know that most dental practices are closed, and here you are with a toothache and you just want to sleep. Your Riverside dentist suggests nearly the same thing for you as if you were at work or in class: Call us if you require an emergency visit or simply leave a message, so we can get back to you first thing in the morning. Take an OTC pain reliever and you may also wish to use a cold compress to help relieve swelling or discomfort.

When You Have Travel Plans

Call us! Your Riverside dentist would much rather fix your tooth now, rather than letting you head off to your travels only for your toothache to worsen. Take the aforementioned approach to relieving pain and see us ASAP.
