Toothache: What Is It And What Causes It?

The pulp inside your tooth is filled with nerves, tissues and blood vessels that are highly sensitive. When they become irritated, inflamed or infected, it can cause considerable pain and discomfort, known as toothache.

Toothache can range from a dull ache or soreness to sharp, debilitating pain in or around the tooth. Some of the most common causes of toothache include

  • Tooth decay
  • Loose or broken filling
  • Crack in your tooth
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold foods
  • Receding gums
  • Impacted teeth
  • Grinding your teeth
  • New filling, crown or bridge that may need to be adjusted

Toothache Symptoms

Toothache can range from a dull ache or soreness to sharp, debilitating pain in or around the tooth. The pain may be continually present, or you may suddenly feel it when you eat, drink, brush or floss your teeth. Sometimes, a toothache can even feel like an earache or sinus pain.

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, don’t wait! contact us for an assessment right away.

Toothache Treatment

Over-the-counter painkillers can provide temporary relief for toothache. For any type of toothache that is recurring or lasts for more than a few hours, it is important to see your dentist for diagnosis and treatment before the situation deteriorates further. Tooth decay and infections should be treated as soon as possible. Depending on the cause of the problem, treatment may involve fillings or root canals to remove the decay or infected matter and protect the remaining tooth.

At McIntosh Dental, we’re dedicated to providing our patients with effective toothache treatment that’s tailored to meet their unique needs. Whether you’re dealing with a mild or severe toothache, we’re here to help you feel better fast.
