Reduce pain and swelling

Over-the-counter pain medication such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help to reduce pain and swelling. Cold compresses can also be applied to the cheek near the affected area to help reduce inflammation. Avoid using blood-thinning medications like aspirin, as they can make it harder to stop bleeding.

Common Emergency Procedures

When you come to our Brooklyn clinic, the doctor will evaluate the situation and suggest treatment options. For example, a dental crown can repair a broken, damaged, or decayed tooth. Toothaches can have various causes, and if an infection is the source of the pain, root canal therapy may be the best solution. Additionally, tooth splinting is a common method to stabilize a loose or knocked-out tooth and allow it to heal properly. We attempt to avoid tooth extractions, but in some cases it may be necessary if a tooth is severely damaged and cannot be repaired.
