Toothache

Toothache

There are several reasons you may be experiencing a toothache. It could be the result of an injury to your gums or teeth, or pieces of food coming in contact with a decayed area of the tooth. Food, heat, or cold can create pressure on the nerve causing pain. If you have a lose filling or crown, the nerve inside the tooth may be exposed, causing pain.

An abscess may be the cause of your pain. This is an infection that builds up between your tooth and gum. Usually from food that is stuck between your tooth and gum for a long period. If the food particles are not removed by brushing or flossing, the pieces of food cause bacteria to multiply, and an infection develops. An abscess can be a serious health problem if it is not treated. Pain when you bite or chew can be a sign of an abscess, especially if you also notice a bad smell or a bad taste in your mouth.

Dental Treatment for Toothache

The pain you experience from a tooth ache may be significant, but the problems and treatments are usually very simple and quick.

If you have a cavity, the dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and place a filling. Now that the inner portioni of the tooth is protected, the pain will usually disappear right away.

If pieces of food are stuck under your gums, your dentist will clean these out. If you developed an infection, you may need antibiotics and pain medicine.

An abscess in the tooth or gum may require more treatment. You may need drainage of the abscess or root canal treatment. In cases where the tooth is severely damaged, it may have to be removed.

With any traumatic dental injury, it’s a race against time. Contact ATA Dental Center’s emergency dental care office immediately.
