Toothache Relief

Carson & Carson, DDS is Available 24/7 for Immediate Toothache Relief (805) 983-0717

Pain from a toothache. The sooner you get treatment for a toothache, the better the outcome tends to be. Without immediate dental treatment, a stubborn toothache can be an agonizing pain to deal with & you may be more likely to lose the tooth, need a root canal, or encounter a serious dental infection the longer you wait to get treatment. Problems with your oral health can be life threatening as the veins and arteries in your lower jaw can lead infection straight to your heart, and those from the upper portion of your mouth can lead straight into your eyes and brain. Veins have no valves, so an infection that is allowed to progress to a stage where it can travel to different parts of your body can be extremely dangerous.

If you are suffering from toothache pain, then call us at Carson & Carson, DDS now for immediate toothache relief – (805) 983-0717.

Request an Appointment

If you are unable to make it to our dental offices for emergency dental treatment, here are some solutions that may offer temporary toothache relief. It should be noted that although these suggestions may offer temporary relief from toothache pain, there is no true substitute for getting help from a medical professional, so we always suggest consulting with your dentist as the first and primary solution.

Salt + Warm Water Rinse

Rinsing with warm water + salt may help relieve toothache pain. Visit a 24 hour available emergency dentist in Oxnard, California at Carson & Carson, DDS.Rinsing your mouth with warm salt water has been known to provide a basic level of toothache relief and is the most commonly used method for relieving tooth pain. A mixture of .5 teaspoon of salt in an 8 ounce glass of water can help to draw out excess fluids in the inflamed gum tissue that may be causing the aches. In addition,  swishing warm water around in your mouth be able to dislodge bits of food which are contributing to the pain of the toothache.

It may offer a temporary pain relief, but the salt water rinse is unlikely to solve the underlying cause of the toothache, so we still suggest visiting your dentist or giving us a call at (805) 983-0717 to schedule an emergency appointment to relieve the toothache pain immediately.

Over the Counter Pain Medications

Over the counter pain medications offer temporary relief from toothache pain, but do not treat the underlying cause. Visit a dental professional to get your toothache treated.Many dentists recommend a dosage of acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or aspirin which offer a somewhat quick, strong shot of pain relief for many applications. These medications are most effective when swallowed, and despite the rumor that applying it directly to the toothache will offer quick relief, DO NOT do this as it can cause damage to the sensitive surfaces of your mouth. DO NOT TAKE ASPIRIN if you are bleeding as it is will worsen the bleeding.

Taking pain medications can mask the pain and can be used to great effect for a short time, but this will not treat the underlying cause. Visit your dentist, or give us a call now (805) 983-0717, to schedule an emergency appointment to treat the source of the toothache pain.

Get Emergency Dental Treatment

Applying Ice to Inflamed Tissues

Applying ice to the cheeks may help provide temporary relief for a toothache. Call Oxnard Dentist Carson & Carson, DDS for emergency dental treatment. Available 24/7If the gum tissue around your aching tooth is inflamed, applying ice to your cheeks near the area may bring some toothache relief as ice has a numbing effect and can help prevent/reduce further inflammation of the aggravated gum tissue. It is also important to note that swelling of the gum tissue or red gums may be a sign of a serious infection or abscess within your gum tissue and should be treated as soon as possible by a dental professional. Again, this solution can help remedy the immediate pain and inflammation that can accompany serious tooth decay or a dental infection, but it will not treat the underlying cause of the toothache.

Don’t wait until the damage causes you to lose your tooth! Schedule an emergency appointment with an Oxnard dentist at Carson & Carson, DDS now at (805) 983-0717, or visit your local dental office to get treatment for the real cause of the toothache.

Applying Clove, Sunflower, or Sesame Oil for Toothache Relief

Various cooking and health oils can be used to attempt to relive toothache pain. Get emergency dental treatment at Carson & Carson, DDS for immediate toothache relief. (805) 983-0717These oils can be applied to the affected area in small amounts by either washing your mouth with a mixture of water and a few drops of the oil, or by adding a couple of drops of oil to a cotton swab and applying it directly to the tooth and surrounding gums. Oil of cloves, sunflower oil, and sesame oil can be found in many general stores and health stores.

This treatment using oils can help directly fight a dental infection by strengthening your immune system, but will most likely not treat the true source of the toothache. We recommend visiting your dentist or scheduling an appointment with the Oxnard dentist available 24/7 for emergency treatment: Carson & Carson, DDS to remove the true source of your toothache pain.

Ginger and Garlic Root

Applying chewed Ginger or Garlic root directly to a tooth affected by a toothache may offer temporary relief from the pain.Both of these roots have naturally disease fighting attributes and can also offer temporary toothache relief as an antibacterial solution. Simply chew the ginger or garlic root and apply it directly to the sore tooth to relieve pain by killing the bacteria in the affected area. Killing the bacteria around the source of the pain might offer temporary relief, but you should always visit your dentist to have toothache pain treated by a dentist.

If you need treatment for a stubborn toothache pain, give us a call at Carson & Carson, DDS (805) 983-0717, where we are available 24 hours a day to offer emergency dental treatment in Oxnard, California.

Non-Rigorous Exercise

Exercise is known to release a rush of endorphins into your bloodstream which can naturally help relieve pain throughout the body. Any non rigorous exercise such as walking or moving about help to trigger this release and may offer temporary toothache relief. The pain relief experienced from exercise is short lived, and you should still contact your dentist for help treating your toothache pain.

At Carson & Carson, DDS, we offer 24 hour availability for emergency dental treatment, so give us a call (805) 983-0717 for immediate toothache relief.

I have had a lot of procedures including 8 implants. There is no better dentist office than Carson and Carson. Dr. Derek Carson (the son of Dr. Leroy Carson) is FANTASTIC! He has learned well from his father (who still works there). Papa is the MAN!, and has been for years. Insane amount of knowledge. The Doctors are THE BEST! The support staff is fun and professional always. I will never go anywhere else.

A dentist that truly understands how much the whole dental trip petrifies me - and helps me overcome it. For the first time, and certainly not the last, he used nitros oxide and I can honestly say I can look at future visits without abject terror. No more waiting until the tooth needs pulled! I may even get my teeth cleaned.

Dr. Derek, you have a hand and a heart of gold. That spirit of help that you have is praiseworthy. I'm amazed at all the treatment you've done and I feel no pain after, not even the pain of the anesthesia sting, I say with propriety because I am very sensitive to pain. Congratulations on your work that loves what you do so you have been successful, not counting on your last generation machine that I do not know how to explain. Much gratitude, you're the best.

Both doctors, father and son (Dr. Leroy and Dr. Derek), are the best of the best. I have been to different dentists due to change on my insurance coverage, but i keep coming back to Carson and Carson (even if it means paying out of pocket) because they take care of the issues others can not or are not willing to. Furthermore, the staff is truly amazing, friendly, knowledgeable, professional. I am in good hands, my family's hands.
