A toothache is a warning that something is wrong. Do not ignore it. Sensitivity to cold or hot beverages, sweets, or biting pressure is not normal. Even if the pain subsides or responds to pain medication, don't delay seeking treatment. Waiting will only make matters worse.
* Pain Prescriptions Policy: Emergency Care Dental practices will write prescriptions for dental pain, but an exam and x-ray is required before any prescriptions can be written.
