Reliable Relief from Toothache Pain

Why Does Toothache Pain Happen?

Toothache pain can happen for a variety of reasons. If you have a diseased tooth, changes in barometric pressure can lead to mild pain. If your tooth is cracked, it may have an exposed nerve, causing intense pain.

Other common causes of toothache pain include:

– Periodontitis/Gum Disease

– Cavities

– Inflammation of the dental pulp

– Erosion of the tooth enamel

If youโ€™re suffering from a toothache, call Shoal Creek Dental Care to schedule an appointment with a toothache pain dentist.

Many people try to cure toothache pain using home remedies, but these solutions only provide temporary relief. Others may go to the emergency room, but these visits do little to solve the underlying causes of the pain, such as tooth decay and infection. The only way to end toothache pain for good is to visit a dentist who can treat the tooth directly.

During your first visit, the dentist will ask you about your toothache pain: when it started, where itโ€™s located and how mild or severe it is. The dentist will then do an exam and take X-rays of your mouth. Depending on the cause of the pain, the dentist will either treat it that day or schedule a follow-up visit to perform any procedures necessary to permanently relieve the pain.

Following your visit, our dentist will give you home instructions on how to best care for your teeth. Regular visits with your dentist, along with good oral hygiene and healthy eating habits, are necessary to maintaining healthy teeth and preventing the issues that can lead to toothache pain and tooth sensitivity.
