Fluoride Treatment FAQ
Are there any home remedies for dental pain to use prior to coming into the office?
If your child is in extreme pain, we will give you some pain-management strategies to help your child feel better until they can make it into the office. Some ways to provide toothache relief include:
- Gently rinsing mouth with salt water
- Over-the-counter pain reliever
- Cold compress over the painful area
- Placing a warm, wet tea bag against the problem area
My child has Special Needs and has trouble at the dentist. Can you still treat their dental pain?
In most cases, we can perform basic dental x-rays, exams, and cleanings for children who have Special Needs. Our tooth pain dentists are experienced and enjoy working with kids who have Special Needs, including kids with Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, children on the Autism Spectrum, and children who deal with dental anxiety.
We’ll do all we can to help your child relax so they can receive the dental care they need. In some cases, we will recommend nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or other sedation dentistry options.
