Toothache

What is your emergency? Toothache

Toothache can occur in the teeth and around the jaws, and is caused by a number of different dental issues. Usually, the pain begins suddenly, and can range from mild discomfort to severe pain. It can come and go, but it can also be constant, and made worse by eating or drinking. Additionally, toothache may get progressively worse as time goes on, so it is essential to see a dentist as soon as you can.

The treatment for a toothache may involve a somewhat invasive dental procedure such as a dental filling, root canal, dental bridge, dental crown or ultimately, a tooth extraction. But treatment today can be comfortable, and in fact, often helps you avoid tooth extraction. In addition, today’s cosmetic dentistry options, like dental veneers and dental implants, offer alternatives to traditional treatment, and provide a greater esthetic and functional benefit.

Question

I had a sudden toothache on one tooth. The gums are slightly swollen. I feel the tenderness when I touch it. After a few days it subsided and I ignored it. A few days later, I had the same toothache. What can I do about this?

Answer

Sudden excruciating pain or toothache may indicate the deep spread of decay in the tooth. Often, root canal treatment is necessary. If you note mild symptoms on the teeth, a check-up with winning smiles dentist will help prevent a bigger problem from occurring. Cracked teeth from excessive wear, chewing on hard foods

Management depending on cause:

  • remove decayed area and protect tooth with filling
  • root canal treatment if decay is extensive and has affected nerve of the tooth
  • drainage of swelling
  • antibiotics for swelling
  • extract tooth if not restorable
