Immediate Toothache relief
You don't have to suffer from toothaches anymore
At Darch Dental Centre, we provide emergency dentistry services for patients who are experiencing toothaches. Our emergency dentists can diagnose the cause of your tooth pain and recommend the best treatment. A toothache typically requires a filling or, if necessary, an extraction. In the case of a bacterial infection, root canal treatment is recommended. We may also prescribe an antibiotic if you have a fever and inflammation in your mouth. We offer same-day appointments and will do our best to relieve your pain and get you back to feeling like yourself again. Our dentists are experienced in dental emergencies and can provide you with the treatment you need when you need it.
Reasons Why You Get a Toothache
- Tooth Decay:
Most toothaches are the result of tooth decay. From routine checkups to root canals, Darch Dental Centre is here to help you keep your teeth healthy and pain-free.
- Dental Abscess:
Dental abscesses can cause excruciating toothaches and, if left untreated, may lead to more severe health problems. At Darch Dental Centre, we provide emergency dental services for patients who are in pain, and we’ll do our best to help you get relief as soon as possible.
If your toothache originates from your gums, you may have gingivitis, a moderate form of gum disease that can be managed with professional dental cleanings. It’s essential to seek treatment for gingivitis, as it can develop into a more serious periodontal disease if left untreated.
In some cases, toothaches are caused by damaged jaws or teeth, such as cracked teeth that expose the nerves, causing severe sensitivity and pain. At Darch Dental Centre, we can give you the treatment you need to get rid of your pain and get your smile back.
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can cause tooth pain and headaches. If you’re struggling with bruxism, we encourage you to contact us today to schedule a consultation, and we’ll work with you to develop a customised treatment plan that meets your unique needs.

FAQ's About toothache
A toothache can vary in intensity from mild to severe, and it may be chronic or intermittent. These symptoms are typically associated with toothaches:
- Sharp or throbbing pain when biting or chewing
- Sensitivity of the teeth to hot or cold liquids
- Tenderness and swelling around your gums or teeth
- Swollen face or jaw
We recommend that you schedule an appointment with a dentist as soon as you experience tooth pain. In addition to giving oral health care instructions, a dentist may administer any necessary dental treatments. To relieve tooth pain while you wait for your dentist appointment, you can try home remedies such as:
- Over-the-Counter Pain Relievers:
Over-the-counter pain relievers can offer relief from a toothache. NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like Nurofen and acetaminophen like Panadol are options.
- Cold Compress:
A cold compress can reduce swelling and pain. Apply ice wrapped in a towel to the affected area every few hours for 20 minutes.
- Saltwater Rinse:
Mix one glass of warm water with ½ teaspoon of salt. Gently swish the saltwater around the affected area to relieve pain. It may help reduce inflammation around your teeth by breaking down bacteria.
Garlic is an all-natural remedy. Garlic has antibacterial properties that can prevent infection and ease the pain of a number of ailments, such as toothaches. Crush garlic cloves and make garlic paste for toothache relief. Apply the paste to the painful area.
- Clove Oil:
Clove oil has antiseptic and pain-relieving properties. You can use clove oil as an antiseptic mouthwash by mixing a few drops with water. You can also dab it on the affected area with a cotton ball.
Extraction isn’t always necessary when you have a toothache. The pain may be brought on by various factors. The reason for your tooth pain will determine if an extraction is needed.
Before recommending potential treatments, your dentist must evaluate all your symptoms. If a cavity causes the toothache, fillings are the most common treatment. When there is a bacterial infection or an infected tooth, root canal therapy is recommended. Before advising a tooth extraction, we will do everything we can to try and save your natural tooth.
First, your dentist will gather information about your health history and conduct a physical examination. There will be questions regarding the pain, including when it started, the severity, the location, what worsens it, and what makes it feel better.
Your dentist will check your teeth, tongue, gums, mouth, jaws, throat, sinuses, nose, ears, and neck to determine the cause of the toothache. There may be X-rays taken and other tests performed, depending on what your dentist believes to be the cause of your toothache.
Toothaches are not fatal by themselves. However, untreated infections in your teeth can lead to further complications. You should see your dentist as soon as possible if you notice any symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment will help prevent the infection from spreading. If an infection has spread, medical attention would be urgently needed. The infection may rapidly spread to other parts of the body.
Systemic infections can often have life-threatening consequences. Dental infections should be diagnosed and addressed appropriately to prevent them from spreading elsewhere on the head and face, or even into the bloodstream.
