Why Does My Tooth Hurt?

At Lee, Bonfiglio, Vesely & Associates our professional team is dedicated to finding the cause of and solution for tooth pain. Learn about common causes of tooth pain and how they can be treated below:

Tooth Pain Annapolis, MD

Sensitive and Damaged Teeth

Sensitive teeth can cause extreme tooth pain, especially when eating hot or cold foods and drinks. You may need to use a special toothpaste specifically crafted for sensitive teeth to minimize or eliminate tooth pain. If you have teeth that are damaged from injury or other dental problems, we offer tooth bonding and porcelain veneers.

Tooth Grinding

If you clench or grind your teeth, you may have a TMJ disorder, which affects the health of the  jaw and teeth. Our dentists will take the time to evaluate your jaw joints and recommend the appropriate treatment options. You may need to wear a custom mouthguard or oral appliance during sleep or stressful situations to treat tooth pain. Oral appliances are crafted from digital impressions taken of your teeth and protect teeth from further wear and tear. If you have worn teeth due to constant grinding, we can fix them with dental crowns, porcelain veneers, and other restorative treatments.

Cavities

A tooth cavity can cause tooth pain when decay or infection reaches the tooth pulp. A dental filling is the most common type of treatment for a cavity that is causing toothache. For severe tooth decay, a painless root canal procedure may be necessary. One of our dentists will remove the infected tooth pulp, clean the tooth, and seal it with a dental crown. If the pain is causing swelling or fever, you may have an abscessed tooth, which infects the tooth pulp as well as surrounding gum and possibly bone. If swelling or fever accompanies your tooth pain, contact our Annapolis office right away.
