Some dental pain can be put to rest with an over-the-counter pain killer or a antibacterial rinse, but other issues should not be ignored. One of the hardest parts of having teeth is knowing when to call for help and when to take care of it yourself. If you have a cavity, pain in your gums or any other issue, this blog is designed to help you tell the difference between an emergency or not. Although I'm not a dental professional, I am a mum, and one could argue that's the next best thing. I've nursed my kids through chipped teeth, agonising cavities and other emergencies, and now that they're grown, I created this blog to help "nurse" you through your emergencies. Thanks for stopping by!
