The cause of tooth pain can vary considerably. Some of the most common causes include cavities, abscesses, cracks in the teeth, gingivitis, and infection in the tooth.
The remedy for toothache depends on the cause of the pain. There are several ways to temporarily alleviate pain, including pain medications, salt water rinses, and cold compresses. However, it's important that patients get to the dentist as soon as possible when they have a toothache. The pain won't typically go away until the underlying reason for the pain has been addressed, and this requires the help of an experienced dental care provider.
Toothaches are treated according to their underlying cause at Beverly Hills Specialty Dental Care. Some of the treatments for toothaches include cavity fillings, root canal therapy, and tooth extraction when needed.
Sensitivity is not quite the same as tooth pain, but it still causes discomfort. Sensitivity often occurs when eating or drinking hot or cold things. This is often an early sign of issues like cavities or gum disease and will usually turn into toothache if not addressed promptly.
No, it doesn't. Although cavities are certainly a potential cause of tooth pain, there are many other potential causes.
Even if teeth only hurt during flossing, the pain should still be taken seriously. This type of pain may be an early sign of gum disease. The earlier that gum disease is diagnosed and treated, the better the chance of fully preserving healthy gum tissue.
It's not unusual to have some mild sensitivity or pain after a routine dental checkup or cleaning. This usually abates within a few hours or a couple of days at most. If the pain continues, call the Beverly Hills Specialty Dental Care for help.
