Are You Singing the Toothache Blues?

Are you or a loved one suffering from the toothache blues? Don’t wait around in pain for the problem to resolve itself. Although we do enjoy spending quality time with our patients at Proud to Serve Family Dentistry, we don’t want any Norman residents to have to undergo unnecessary dental procedures. A toothache can indicate a much more serious problem that should be addressed immediately, but there are a few things you can do in the meantime for temporary relief from toothache pain.

Home Remedies:

  • Painkillers – This one might be obvious, as painkillers are one of the fastest, most effective ways to temporarily relieve mild to moderate pain and inflammation.
  • Salt Water – Salt has natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties. Add a spoonful of salt to a warm cup of water. Gargle the dissolved solution several times daily.
  • Cold Compress – Just like any other injury, a cold compress can work wonders at reducing the swelling, inflammation, and pain of a toothache.
  • Clove Oil – Cloves also have natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anesthetic properties that can help relieve pain. Apply clove oil directly to the affected tooth, or add a few drops to a half cup of water and use as a rinse.

These are just a few home remedies for temporary relief from a toothache—but remember, a toothache is your mouth’s way of telling you that something is wrong and should not be ignored. If you or a loved one are suffering from the toothache blues, the first thing you should do is contact Proud to Serve Family Dentistry in Norman today to schedule an appointment. Dr. Audrey will have you singing a new tune in no time.

I highly recommend Dr. Audrey! I've had to have 3 amalgam fillings and a root canal tooth removed in the last few months. I chose her because she's SMART certified with the IAOMT, she's a holistic dentist and her great reviews. Her office is clean and the staff is super friendly. I've seen my health improve since having the amalgams removed - the numbing/tingling in my face is almost completely gone and now I'm able to continue with my heavy metal detox safely!

Dr. Audrey is great! After taking my kids to several other dentists who were horrible, it is so nice to go to a dentist I can trust. She is open to more natural health choices, which is a huge plus. Also, she doesn't push unnecessary procedures just to make more money, like most other dentists. Having a trust-worthy dentist is so valuable, especially when you are dealing with dental issues. The staff and hygienists are also very friendly and do great work. I highly recommend them!

Dr. May-Jones Is an excellent dentist. During my most recent appointment she was breaking in a new assistant and not only was her work great but she was kind and patient to her staff. I have seen the other side of that coin and, especially in today’s environment, I appreciate her attitude along with her work.
