The pain can start small, so small that you ignore it. Over time, it can become unbearable. A toothache is often the result of an infected tooth, and it’s something that should be addressed as soon as possible.

If you are having a toothache, follow these four steps to fix it.

1. Make an Appointment

Sedation Dentistry 2 | Edgewood Dental Care - Edgewood, KY

At home, you may have received some relief from over-the-counter pain medicine. At our office, we provide sedation dentistry so you don’t feel any more pain during your treatment.

3. Get a Root Canal

A root canal treatment is how we remove the infected tissue causing your toothache. After this is taken out, your tooth is filled with a special material and capped with a crown.

4. Feel Like Yourself

Within a few days of your treatment, you should be back to feeling like yourself. You should be able to bite and chew without pain and the toothache pain should be gone.
