Tooth pain is one of the most acute types of discomfort and can significantly impact your daily life. At Tolland Hill Family Dental, we understand how debilitating tooth pain can be and offer a range of solutions to provide relief and address the underlying causes.

Understanding Tooth Pain

Tooth pain can manifest in various forms:

  • Sharp Pain: A stabbing sensation around the tooth, often indicative of decay or an abscess.
  • Throbbing Pain: A pulsating feeling, like a heartbeat in the tooth, usually a sign of infection or inflammation.
  • Inflammation: Swelling around the tooth, typically along the gum line.
  • Gum Discomfort: Red, irritated, or bleeding gums, often associated with gum disease.
  • General Mouth Pain: Diffuse pain that is hard to pinpoint, possibly due to a range of dental issues.

Immediate Relief for Toothaches

While these are not permanent solutions, they can provide temporary relief until you can visit Tolland Hill Family Dental:

  • Salt and Warm Water Rinse: Helps reduce inflammation and cleanse the area.
  • Ice or Cold Compress: Useful for reducing swelling and numbing pain.
  • Hydrogen Peroxide Rinse: Can assist in killing bacteria and reducing gum inflammation.
  • Alcohol: A cotton ball soaked in alcohol and applied to the affected area can numb the pain.

What Our Patients Say

Never had I had so much attention paid to my whole mouth health. Performed mouth cancer checks and measured gum gaps (didn't know this was a thing). A lot of time with doctor, not just the hygienist. Explained everything they were doing and why.
Daniel Keener
The team at this office was very kind, understanding, patient and persistent in working with my child. She is highly anxious at the dentist and they took their time to help her through the experience. Would highly recommend them to others!
