Self Care Advice

Patients are advised to see a dentist if they have toothache that lasts more than 2 days.

To ease toothache while waiting for an appointment:

  • Take painkillers, like ibuprofen or paracetomol (children under 16 shouldn’t take aspirin)
  • Try rinsing your mouth with salt water (children shouldn’t try this)
  • Use a pain-relieving gel on the affected area
  • Eat soft foods, like yoghurt or scrambled eggs, and try to avoid chewing with the sore tooth


What causes toothache?

  • Tooth decay
  • A dental abscess
  • A cracked or damaged tooth
  • A loose or broken filling, an infection – this often happens when a tooth (such as a wisdom tooth) has broken the skin, but doesn't have enough room to fully come through
  • Problems with braces

Did you know?

When you use clove oil for toothache pain, it’s the eugenol (an ingredient within clove oil) that provides relief.

Eugenol is a natural anaesthetic and antibacterial, and it works well at reducing inflammation in the mouth.
