One of the most common dental emergencies is toothache or dental pain. When you have a toothache, your daily activities are affected. Eating can be difficult, causing you to lose your appetite and experience headaches.
Over-the-counter drugs offer quick relief, but relief that won’t last for long.

After a couple of hours, you’re stuck with a toothache again. What you really need is a lasting and effective solution.

Sayers Dental Aesthetics & Implants offers dental solutions to make sure your toothache doesn’t return.

Causes of Toothache

Tooth decay

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.

Trauma

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.

Gum Disease

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 bite

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®.

Impacted tooth

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.

Bruxism

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.
