Tooth Pain Relief in West Palm Beach
While a toothache may seem minor, it can be a warning sign for serious health issues such as TMJ Syndrome or even heart problems. Most commonly, tooth pain stems from tooth decay, infection, injury, or gum loss. These oral health problems are relatively easy to treat when caught early, but ignoring them can lead to more serious and expensive health issues down the road.
Signs You Should See Your Dentist

- Tooth pain caused by chewing.
- Bleeding gums around teeth—or other gum disease symptoms.
- Persistent tooth pain.
- Fever accompanied by mouth pain.
- Swelling in jaw or around teeth.

Any of these symptoms could be signs of something more serious. It’s important to call us or schedule a consultation as soon as possible.
If you are experiencing tooth pain, the following suggestions can offer temporary toothache relief until you see Dr. Brion Weinberg DDS.
Try gently rinsing your mouth out with warm water and use dental floss to remove any food lodged between teeth. If you use aspirin or other painkillers, be careful to keep them away from the gums near the tooth pain as they can damage gum tissue. If tooth pain continues, call Dr. Brion Weinberg DDS at Weinberg Dentistry as soon as possible.
