Self-help measures

Self-help measures Avoid stimuli that precipitate or worsen the pain, such as hot or cold foods or cold air. Holding cooled water or crushed ice around the tooth can help

some types of dental pain. Severe pain from the mouth or teeth sometimes feels worse when lying flat, so try lying propped up as this might ease the pain. Use painkillers that have successfully provided pain relief for you in the past without adverse effects, such as ibuprofen and/or paracetamol. Avoid taking aspirin as a painkiller if there is bleeding. Always follow directions on the packet for advice on precaution in some medical conditions. If this advice provided proves inadequate, call us back.
