Do you ever feel that mild throbbing sensation that comes and goes from time to time? Does your tooth ever get sensitive due to hot and cold temperature food or beverages? Do you feel any swelling or irritation around your tooth? If you are experiencing any feelings of these symptoms, it is time to make an appointment to see your dentist! Tooth pain is never a good sign, and it is highly recommended to see your dentist at an early stage of your discomfort. The most common toothaches are related to a root canal, a painless procedure that can help avoid tooth extraction.

The common causes of toothaches consist of:

  • Tooth abscess
  • Tooth Impact
  • Tooth Decay
  • Dental Injuries
  • Gum Disease

There are various causes of toothache and treatments for them.

  • Dental injury can be bonded with a dental crown.
  • Dental decay can be treated with an in-office composite filling.
  • Gum disease can be treated with scaling and root planning.
  • Impact teeth can be surgically removed.
  • Chronic tooth pain that results from infection and bacterial deep within your tooth will require a root canal to treat and preserve the remaining portions of your tooth.

Don’t let your toothache worsen before you see a dentist. When you feel any signs of discomfort, you are encouraged to see a dentist immediately!
