Toothaches can cause excruciating pain that keeps you up at night, prevents you from eating or biting down, and makes you feel ill. It usually occurs when the dental pulp in the tooth becomes inflamed, but can happen for a number of reasons:
- Gum disease
- Dental injuries
- Bruxism (teeth grinding)
- A misaligned bite
- A cracked tooth
- Loose or broken fillings
- Impacted or erupting wisdom teeth
With most toothaches, the pain flares up suddenly and can range from minor discomfort to serious pain that interferes with your daily activities. In many instances a toothache will get progressively worse as time goes on, so if you are experiencing pain, call Oatlands Dental Lounge immediately.
The treatment we use depends on the dental issue causing the pain. If X-rays and an oral examination reveal tooth decay, your dentist will clear this away and replace it with a filling. Should the cavity prove to be extensive, then a root canal and/ or course of antibiotics may be necessary, depending on the nature and extent of the infection. Alternatively should the tooth not be restorable, then an extraction may be required
Anyone experiencing a toothache should see their dentist as soon as possible for diagnosis and treatment. Left untreated, a toothache and its underlying cause can worsen and jeopardise your dental health, so if you are in pain and need emergency dental care, call Oatlands Dental Lounge now.
