Why does my tooth hurt?

ToothacheToothaches can be common in young children. Sometimes, toothaches are caused by erupting teeth, but they also could indicate a serious problem. You can safely relieve a small child’s toothache without the aid of medication by rinsing the mouth with a solution of warm water and table salt. If the pain does not subside, acetaminophen (Tylenol) may be used. If such medications do not help, contact your dentist immediately at Scott M. Healey Dentistry. Dr. Scott Healey and his caring dental team understand that toothaches and other dental problems never occur at an opportune time, and we work hard to provide you with the care you need when you need it.
