Causes of Toothache
Tooth decay, when left ignored, attacks the surfaces of the teeth. The bacteria in the teeth erode its surfaces exposing the sensitive nerves of the tooth. Bacteria in the pulp can cause serious discomfort.
When you receive a strong blow to your face, the pain doesn’t always go away quickly. Sometimes, the pain stays, and can even be caused by simply opening your mouth. Cracks in your teeth can run to the roots and develop into cavities or worse.
The bacteria in the mouth attack and irritate the gums, causing them to recede. When the gums recede, the sensitive parts of the teeth are exposed, resulting in sensitivity towards extremely hot, cold, sticky, or sweet foods and beverages.
Abnormal alignment of the teeth results in uneven pressure inside the mouth. This may need the help of orthodontic correction like conventional braces or Invisalign®.
When a tooth does not develop fully through the gums, it irritates its surrounding nerves, causing discomfort. Common cases of an impacted tooth involve wisdom teeth and other molars.
If you have toothache with no signs of tooth decay or periodontal disease, you may have bruxism. Bruxism is a common cause of toothache. If you experience toothache or other symptoms of bruxism, see your Hoppers Crossing dentist as soon as possible.
If left untreated, persistent tooth grinding can damage crowns and fillings, and wear away the enamel, putting your teeth at risk for infection.
First Aid for Toothache
In case of toothache or dental pain, here’s what you can do:
- Make sure there are no food particles stuck in the mouth. To remove the food debris, brush your teeth and floss gently, especially in the affected area.
- If there is swelling, apply a cold compress.
- Take over-the-counter pain relievers, but do not give aspirin to those below 18 years old. Never put aspirin directly on your aching tooth or the gums surrounding it.
- Visit your Hoppers Crossing dentist immediately.
