Common Causes For Tooth Pain
Sensitive teeth can cause extreme tooth pain, especially when eating hot or cold foods/drinks. For intermittent tooth sensitivity, your dentist may suggest a special tooth paste for sensitive teeth to minimize or eliminate tooth pain symptoms. Persistent tooth sensitivity that causes moderate or severe tooth pain can be a sign of tooth grinding, tooth decay or another dental problem. Your dentist will examine the affected teeth and create a personalized treatment plan.
If you are grinding your teeth, the dentist may make a special mouthguard that you wear at night to stop teeth from grinding. This night guard will be crafted from digital impressions taken of your teeth. It will only be worn during sleep.
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. The dentist will remove the inflamed or diseased tooth pulp and seal the tooth with a dental crown.
If the pain is causing swelling or fever, you may have an abscessed tooth. This is a serious condition that causes infection of the tooth pulp as well as surrounding gum and possibly bone. If you are experiencing this type of tooth pain, contact our Annapolis dental office for an appointment with one of our dentists right away.
If your tooth pain is concentrated in the jaw or face, you may have a TMJ disorder. Tooth pain can be a result of pressure in the jaw joints and/or pressure from grinding or clenching teeth.
Pain When Chewing
If you experience tooth pain when you chew or bite, you could have a cracked tooth, broken crown, or loose filling. Another cause may be a tooth cavity. Your dentist will examine your condition and create a personalized treatment plan.
