How To Treat A Toothache ?
The use of drugs such as antibiotics, painkillers, vitamins taken for toothache without the knowledge of the physician is not suitable for treatment.
Treatment is possible by identifying the source of the disease and eliminating it. If the tooth hurts due to caries and the caries has progressed to the nerves, root canal treatment should be performed. A tooth that does not hurt is not always a healthy tooth. In chronic infections, the teeth usually do not hurt.
