Dental pain is any type of pain or discomfort that occurs in the teeth, gums, jaws, or surrounding facial areas. It is one of the most common dental problems. Dental pain is usually caused by decay, a cracked tooth, or an infection. However, other, more serious dental conditions can also cause it.
When patients experience tooth pain, it’s usually the result of one of the following conditions:
If you have experienced any of the above dental issues, we can help! During a consultation at our practice, we can check for signs of the above conditions and suggest appropriate treatment.
A root canal is one of the most common ways to treat a pulp-related infection. During a root canal procedure, the dentist will remove the diseased pulp, clean out the tooth and seal it to prevent future infection. Without this procedure, a tooth with a damaged pulp can become abscessed and eventually die.
If your tooth is sensitive and sensitive to hot or cold foods and liquids, you may need a filling to treat the pain. A cavity can cause pain because the bacteria in the mouth eat away at the inside of the tooth. As a result, the nerves inside the tooth become inflamed and more sensitive. The inflammation actually worsens over time if not treated through dental treatments.
If your dentist decides that antibiotic treatment is the correct course of action for you, he or she will prescribe an oral antibiotic medication to fight the infection. Your dentist may ask you to take this medication first and follow up with an appropriate dental procedure.
If a tooth is damaged beyond repair and can’t be repaired with restorative treatments, it may need to be pulled. When the tooth is loose or has been impacted below the gum line, it must be removed before it can cause further problems.
