Are you in pain from your mouth?
- Avoid that makes the pain worse e.g. hot or cold foods
- Ice around the tooth may help to relieve it
- Lie propped up if it is worse lying down
- Use painkillers that you have used in the past, that work for you without any side effects. ALWAYS follow the directions on the packet and look out for precautions if you have medical conditions. Any Pharmacist will advise you on this.
