There are many possible causes of toothache. Some are relatively minor while others could represent a dental emergency! So if you have sudden, severe tooth pain or a persistent dull ache then we recommend you see dental advice as soon as possible.
Whatever the cause, there is no reason to remain in discomfort as our dental professionals can have you pain-free and smiling again in no time.
Causes of Tooth Ache
Tooth ache can be caused by a variety of problems including tooth decay, gum infections, broken tooth or filling, jaw clenching, wisdom tooth eruption, sinus infection or an abscess under the gums.
What to Expect On Your Visit
Since there are so many factors that could cause toothache, your dentist will perform an oral examination, x-rays and ask you questions to try and determine what treatment is going to relieve your pain.
Often the problem can be solved the same day as the diagnosis but if that is not possible then our dental professionals can prescribe pain medication to ensure you stay as pain-free as possible until your next visit.
