Tooth pain during COVID 19??

Updated: Apr 9, 2020

Are you experiencing tooth pain during this crisis and are unable to go to the dentist?

Let me try to help you out!

Tooth pain can be extremely distracting, keeping many up through the wee hours of the night. Normally you would go to a dentist the very next day and get it sorted!

But what if you wont be able to visit a dental clinic for a really long time and the pain is getting worse by the minute? Read on to know what you can do to ease the pain.

Start with some rinses using warm water and salt two to three times a day. This is considered to be very effective in managing various kinds of dental pain.

This is considered as the "Ram Baan" of dentistry. You got food stuck somewhere, you got pain, you got swelling, these rinses have the power to manage it all! It's always a good idea to start with these first

You can also consider placing some clove in the area that hurts. Clove oil can also be used instead. This method is also said to take some of the pain away.

Contact your dentist over phone

Since you will not be able to visit any dentists right now as they are all closed down due to the fear of spreading infection, you can still give your dentist a call and get yourself a tele-consultation. He/She will be able to guide you so much better! And you won't have to endure any side effects of experiments you would have done on yourself!

Most likely the dentist will prescribe you a pain killer and/or an antibiotic cover to take care of the pain and/or swelling. The medicines will suppress the infection for now and make you comfortable.

Once the pandemic spread slows down and everything goes back to normal, you can go visit the dentist and get a proper treatment done.

Right now, whatever the case may be, unless it is an extreme emergency, do not step out of your houses. Do not go to the dentist until the spread has been controlled.
