“How do you stop nerve pain in your tooth?”
I am a 27 year old male. I want to know how can I stop nerve pain in your tooth?
Dr. Patricia Bezad Dentist Yuba City, CA
It depends on what the symptoms are caused by. By chewing? Hot/cold foods? Spontaneously? Shooting? Or throbbing pain? Generally, Ibuprofen is known to be the best dental pain relief given that there are no contraindications. Consult your physician to see if it is safe for you to take. Rinsing with lukewarm salt water twice a day helps temporarily. An over-the-counter Oragel or Orabase can also temporarily help.

It depends on what the cause of the pain is. To determine that, you need to see a dentist. There are several options to treat tooth pain, some are very simple, some are more complicated and expensive. The longer you wait, the more costly it could become.
