Cohort Comparison of Dental Nerve Block With Other Forms of Analgesia in Alleviating the Pain of Toothache

Toothache is a common source of pain for Emergency Department patients. There are several common ways to control the pain of toothache. But we do not know if any one of them is more effective than another. It is also possible that how we take care of your pain in the Emergency Department will influence the level of pain you experience one or two days from now. This study seeks to answer these questions.
