Don't Suffer From a Toothache Any Longer

A toothache is pain coming from within or around a tooth. While it may be managed at home, more serious cases may require professional dental care. The dentists in our clinic will provide emergency care and take the necessary actions to alleviate pain.

Tooth decay or cavities can cause a toothache.

Tooth decay happens when bacteria in the mouth produce acids and attack the enamel. Over time, the damage can progress, leading to dental cavities or holes in the teeth. Unaddressed, such a dental problem can cause tooth pain.

A toothache can be caused by gingivitis or gum disease.

Gingivitis is caused by poor oral hygiene, resulting in a buildup of plaque. The bacteria can gradually irritate and infect the gum tissue, resulting in gum recession and exposing the tooth roots, leading to discomfort.

A toothache can be due to an abscessed tooth.

A dental abscess is an infection at the tip of a tooth's root. It is a serious oral health issue that can be painful and carries a few risks of further complications. Hence, it needs prompt treatment.

A fractured tooth or damaged tooth restorations can cause a toothache.

When a tooth breaks, chips, or cracks, it may lead to exposing the inner layers, which can cause tooth sensitivity. Similarly, if the dental fillings or crown fall out or are damaged, the tooth is unprotected and causes pain.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Toothache

Having a toothache can be overwhelming, and it’s normal to have a few inquiries. We’ve listed
some questions we often hear from our patients. We hope they can be helpful so you know
how to manage your dental pain before coming to the clinic.

Rinsing with warm salt water may help loosen debris between teeth that may be causing discomfort. Salt is a natural antiseptic that can fight off bacteria and reduce inflammation. It may provide immediate, temporary relief. You can also apply an ice pack to the side of your cheek where you suspect your toothache is. An ice massage helps reduce pain and swelling by constricting the blood vessels and slowing blood flow to the affected area.

It depends on your specific case and the possible cause of the toothache. If the pain comes from the outside or around the tooth, it may subside without a trip to the dentist. However, if the toothache is persistent and you notice a visible fracture in your tooth, it may not go away and require immediate dental treatment. This is particularly crucial if you have sustained recent dental trauma.

When your toothache has been present for more than two days and is unbearable, it may indicate a serious dental problem. We encourage you to see your dentist at Mary River Dental as soon as possible, particularly if you have a fever, difficulty opening your mouth, earache, or swelling in your mouth or face.

Neglecting your toothache can cause various problems that may be detrimental to your dental health. It may heighten the risk of further damage, gum disease, and infection. A present infection can spread to the adjacent teeth and other parts of the body, which can be fatal. Most dental professionals recommend receiving treatment as soon as possible.
