It’s no surprise that going to the dentist is something that a lot of people dread. Unfortunately, as a result of this, people often attempt doing their own DIY dentistry. This really is not a good idea... for obvious reasons!

Yes, there a many dentists who will be able to tell you tales of foolish patients who – rather than going to the dentist to receive proper dental care – decided to take matters into their own hands. This involves cutting out teeth with unsterile implements, or using super glue (yes, really!).

Before you attempt doing anything you will regret, read through this article first.

Use Pain Relief

Pain relief medication was invented for a reason. Not only does it relieve pain, it stops you from considering ripping your teeth out with a pair of pliers. The best pain killing medication is anti-inflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen and ketoprofen if it is available. However, it may not be a good idea to take these painkillers if you have asthma, so ensure you consult your doctor first!

If you gums, teeth or mouth is extremely sore and the painkillers aren’t providing much help (or it won’t go away at all), there’s a good chance you have an infection or an abscess. Obviously, if this is the case you’re going to need to go and see a doctor, especially if there’s stuff oozing out of your mouth.

More than likely, your doctor will prescribe some antibiotics which will help get rid of the infection.

Why You Need to See an Emergency Dentist

If you’re in a lot of pain constantly, and the cost of painkillers is starting to take a big chunk out of your wallet, you’re better off going to see a dentist. Yes, it will cost some money, but in the long term you will be better off for it. They will rectify your dental problems so that you will no longer need to keep buying painkillers.

Dentist professionals have many years worth of experience dealing with similar cases to yours. The most interesting thing is that a lot of people think their case is so unique that they are afraid of going to the dentist.

The fact of the matter is that dentists have seen the most extreme of the extremes. From rotten teeth caused by ‘meth mouth’, to actual mouth cancer that has gone untreated for a long period of time, your dentist is not going to be surprised by your own individual situation.

If you want to speak with a professional emergency dentist who has seen it all and knows how to help you out with your personal situation, give Wisdom Dental Emergency a call on 1300 217 858 and find out how you can rectify the situation and start living stress-free.
