A toothache is not only bothersome, it could also point to a larger problem with the affected tooth. When you have a toothache you want to make sure you get it checked out as soon as possible. This circumvents larger issues and ensures your dental health is where it should be.
What a Toothache Could Mean
Toothaches can point to a lot of problems: tooth decay, an abscess, a fractured tooth, a damaged filling, or infected gums, for instance. In some cases, this is a dental emergency. It might point to a dental infection, which could become serious if left untreated (bacteria from the infection could spread to other parts of the face, the skull, and eventually the bloodstream).
See us as soon as possible if your the pain lasts for 1-2 days, causes severe pain, or is accompanied by an earache, fever, or pain when opening your mouth wide.
How to Relieve Toothache
Toothaches caused from cavities can be filled, but other causes might need more treatments. If you have an infected nerve, you might need a root canal. We can take temporary measures to relieve the pain, but in order to get rid of the pain completely, you must fix the underlying problem. We can check out your tooth and determine the right steps to take.
