Toothaches can be a painful situation and put a damper on the best of days. That is why, our dentist and team in Prestonburg, Kentucky, are happy to talk to you about toothache treatments, so you can go back to enjoying your day.

The first thing to remember to do at the sign of a toothache is to call your dental office and make an appointment with Dr. Edford Clark as soon as possible. That way you can discover the cause of a toothache and get the proper care and treatment you need to restore your smile. In the meantime, one thing you can on your own is to clean out your teeth and the painful area. This is an essential step in case there is something stuck between your gums and tooth causing the pain.

Other treatments you can do on your own is to use a cool compress to numb the pain as you await your appointment with the dentist. Various treatment options could include antibiotics if there is an infection, draining the infected area, a dental crown, a dental filling, or even a root canal if needed.

If you have any questions about your oral health, or if you are struggling with a toothache, please call us today at 606-886-4260 to set up an appointment. Our friendly team is happy to take your call and help you in any way we can.
