Sometimes, the unexpected can strike when you least expect it in your mouth, especially when it comes to dental pain. Even the tiniest chip can lead to lacerations in the mouth on the tongue and gums, as can a veneers or filling falling out. These can be countered with painkillers until you get seen, as can a toothache from dental decay which can be very painful. The worst scenario though can come from losing a tooth, the appearance of wisdom tooth or the most sinister of all, having an abscess erupt in your mouth: again painkillers can help, but you need to seek immediate help in order that these conditions do not get out of hand. It is wise to be prepared for such things going wrong in the mouth and so give the Clifton Dental Studio a call over in Bristol: they serve the whole of the Gloucester area and can give you tips about things that you can get to keep in the bathroom cabinet. This may range from painkiller to anaesthetic gels to herbal remedies in order to soothe any problems until you can get seen by your dentist if a crisis arises, and by so being prepared, you will cut down the risk of further damage and infection whenever dental pain crops up.
