Toothaches? Remember these First Aid Tips before Seeing a Dentist


There are few things in life as painful as a toothache–even the most stoic person can be brought to tears by this excruciating discomfort. Unfortunately, toothaches have a habit of manifesting at the most inopportune time, such as in the middle of the night or over the weekend when dental offices are closed.

If you find yourself in such a situation, there are a couple of self-care tips that can help alleviate the pain until you can visit trusted Lehigh Valley dentists.
