People often observe that tooth pain increases at night. This is usually because when you are lying down, there is an increase in blood volume towards your head. This can increase the pressure within the tooth (and pain) that results into you feeling a toothache.
Most people find that Paracetamol or an ibuprofen can often help calm down the symptoms and offer temporary relief. Be sure to consult with your doctor before you use a pain reliever that’s new to you.
You should never ignore or avoid the tooth pain — especially if it’s been persisting for more than 1-2 days and your pain has not subsided. You should also be watchful for any signs of swelling on the face or inside the mouth, tooth tenderness for touch or pressure, pain radiating towards ear, or fever. If any of these symptoms occur, you should seek immediate help.
Everyone was nice, professional and able to answer any questions I had. I could not express how grateful I am for this office, staff and to the great work of Dr Dhawan! I had an extraction and 2 implants with no pain at all. The care and constant concern of the Dr and staff is remarkable.
