Don’t Cry Over Cavities: What To Do Instead

We know that when you have a cavity, especially if it’s one that feels very uncomfortable, you may initially give in to feeling miserable. While this can most certainly evoke the shedding of a few tears, our Virginia Beach, VA team would really prefer for you to dry those tears and take a much more positive approach to handling your tooth decay. We can help you feel better right now, feel better about the entire experience, and even feel physically better for good! Learn more with us.

#1: Take An OTC Pain Reliever

There’s no need to suffer in discomfort if your cavity is causing you pain. Of course, we never suggest the long-term use of pain medicine for your oral health problem because what you need is to treat it. What we do recommend, however, is feeling okay until you come see our team. Go ahead and rely on an over-the-counter (OTC) pill, if you wish, that assists you in pain relief. You’ll find that when your tooth doesn’t feel hyper-sensitive and isn’t throbbing, it’s much easier to feel optimistic about taking care of the issue.

#2: Resolve To Do Better

We know that you’re unhappy about developing a cavity. Nobody really likes ending up with decay and nobody becomes overly thrilled about having to schedule dental fillings. However, if you want to maintain a positive outlook, we strongly encourage you to remember something: The decay has already occurred and we are going to fix it, so your smile is practically pristine again. All you have to do is resolve to do better from this point going forward. When you get serious about protecting your smile, you don’t need to worry about developing oral health problems anymore.

#3: Call Us, Come In Very Soon

Spending time thinking about and lamenting your cavity might give you some emotional release that you need if you feel upset. However, once you feel better emotionally, your tooth will still be in just as much trouble if you have decay. That is, unless you call us and come in for a restorative treatment. Come in soon! We will fix the tooth right up and you’ll be happy to report you’ve got excellent oral health again.
