One moment, your smile isn’t really registering in your thoughts because it’s fine. The next? It’s nearly all you can think about because you have a toothache, which is a very unique type of pain that often takes over your entire existence until things are better! The result of this sensation, of course, is that your main goal becomes seeking and achieving relief. You think about what your life was like before the discomfort (so lovely!). You wonder what to do to make it stop right now, how to avoid it ever again, and more. As you probably already guessed, our Ankeny, IA team can help you sort out exactly what to do now, soon, and in the long run for relief!
We are well aware that when you have a toothache, though you would love to achieve any and all relief possible and you never want this discomfort again, your priority is taking care of the immediate pain. Fortunately, this isn’t difficult to do. Remember that when you take over-the-counter pain relievers from the drugstore (and you take the amount suggested on the label), you can quickly alleviate the severity of your pain. Keep in mind, as well, that you should avoid anything that might further irritate your tooth, including extremes in temperature and pressure.
Serious Relief Soon
Now, you have figured out how to take the edge off of the pain associated with your toothache. However, you may wonder: How can you make it stop completely? The good news is that achieving complete relief is absolutely something you can make happen and happen soon. It’s simply a matter of calling our team, telling us about your oral health issue, and then coming in for your checkup with us. We will investigate, inform you of the cause of your pain, and then tell you which treatment will solve it! For instance, if that ache is caused by a cavity, we will suggest a filling. Visit us for the treatment, the problem will be resolved, and the ache will be gone!
Long-Term Avoidance Of Discomfort
Now what, you wonder? What can you do to avoid another toothache? Easy. Get very real about dental care. Practice the best preventive care you can both at home and with checkups and cleanings. That way, you will generally avoid the development of oral health problems (but, if one should form, we will detect and treat it before it can cause discomfort!).
