When to See a Dentist

See your Melbourne CBD dentist as soon as possible about your toothache if you suffer from any of the following:

  • Toothache that lasts longer than 1 or 2 days
  • Toothache is severe
  • Fever, earache, or pain when opening your mouth

Proper diagnosis and treatment of dental infection is important to prevent its spread to other parts of the face and even to the bloodstream.

See a Dentist for Emergency Toothache Treatment

Most toothaches will need a trip to the dentist. You have to get the cause of the toothache addressed, or it will not start to heal.

Your Melbourne CBD dentist can evaluate your condition and recommend treatment conditions.

Sometimes, a toothache is a sign of a severe problem.

Other signs you should see your dentist right away include:

  • Fever
  • Pus or blood on or near the painful tooth
  • Inflamed jaw

These can all point to a dental abscess, an issue that requires immediate treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I do while waiting to see my dentist?
Make sure your mouth is clean. Rinse with lukewarm saltwater and gently floss around the painful area to remove any food particles that may be contributing to your pain. Place a cold compress on the outside of your cheek to help relieve some of the pain and inflammation.
What happens when I go to the dentist’s office for my toothache?

The dental team will perform a physical exam. We will check your mouth, teeth, gums, jaws, tongue, throat, sinuses, ears, nose and neck. You’ll may get X-rays of your mouth taken to show the cause of your toothache.

How do I prevent a toothache?

Practise a regular oral hygiene routine. Failure to brush and floss regularly can increase your risk of developing cavities, which can cause toothache.

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, preferably after meals and snacks.
  • Floss the areas between your teeth at least once a day to remove food particles.
  • Visit your Melbourne dentist regularly for oral examinations and professional cleaning.
