Pain Relief For Toothache

In this blog post I just wanted to share some advice with regards to toothache during the current lockdown.  If you are struggling with toothache here are a few things that can help

1- Sensitivity if you are getting sensitivity to cold then this could be a result of the nerve within the tooth being sensitized one of the things that can be used for this is Sensodyne toothpaste or GC tooth Mousse both can be purchased from most pharmacies or Amazon.  The best way to use these is to rub them into the sensitive area after brushing and then do not rinse afterward.

2- Painkillers – The most common painkillers to use for toothache are the ones available over the counter which include paracetamol and Ibuprofen, these are available from the pharmacy but please speak to the pharmacist to make sure you can take them and the correct dosage. Using painkillers should only be a temporary measure and should consult with your dentist as soon as you can.

I hope that helps a little please stay safe

MEET DR. NADIM MAJID & THE LIFESTYLE DENTAL TEAM

Dr. Nadim Majid qualified from Liverpool Dental school in 2001 and since then has worked in Lancashire for a number of years. He decided to undertake a career in dentistry as he found it was a good mix of science and art and also gave him the ability to help people and make a difference for them.

This really hit home when he worked in a nursing home for a short time and actually saw the impact upon the health and well being of patients whom had lost their teeth the impact was significant on the general health and well being and this is something Dr. Majid wanted to make sure he helped others avoid.

Dr. Majid is trained in hypnosis, sedation for nervous people, dental implants as well as braces. He lives in Lancashire with his two children (twins) and his wife who is a teacher. Dr. Majid has always and will continue to be focused on producing top quality services that his patients have come to expect and appreciate.
