There is an end to dental pain at London dentist
There are few pains in this world like dental pain. If you have ever suffered from a really bad toothache caused by an infection, or even a damaged tooth as the result of an accident you will know just how excruciating and debilitating the pain can be. There are a couple of main reasons why dental pain is so bad. Firstly, the pain is right inside your head and there is little you can do to relieve it (or at least it seems that way). Secondly, dental pain is caused by the aggravation of the dental nerve, which is located at the centre of the tooth. This is a very sensitive nerve that is connected to other nerves in the head.
When suffering from dental pain it may seem like there is no end to pain and no relief to be had. This is not true. Although the pain may be severe there are several things you can do to make it better. The first thing you must always do when suffering from any kind of dental pain is to see a dentist as soon as possible. London dentists are on hand to treat dental emergencies whether during practice hours when they will fit you in, or out of hours when an on call dentist service will be available for emergencies. They will be able to perform any emergency dentistry that is required and offer pain relief in the form of medication.
Home relief from pain can include using a ice cube applied to the painful area. This will help to numb the pain as will taking over-the-counter pain medication such as paracetemol, but in all cases these are no substitute for seeing a dentist and receiving the necessary treatment.
