When it comes to a toothache, the first thing to do is to visit your dentists, Dr. Jim Nored & Annette Gemp as soon as possible. They can give you a proper diagnosis and the start the right treatment before further damage or problems can occur. It is also imperative to wash and rinse your mouth to make sure that any small debris that may be caught in your gums or between your teeth is removed.
