Home Remedies for Dental Abcesses
There are actions you can take at home to relieve the pain.
- Avoid food and drink that is either too hot or too cold.
- Chewing on the side of your mouth without an abscess will probably be less painful
- Do not floss around the affected area.
- Use a very soft toothbrush.
While home remedies can help make a person more comfortable while they wait for treatment, it is important to visit a healthcare professional for treatment to avoid any of the complications of a dental abscess.
