What Causes Toothache
A toothache is generally a sign of a more serious dental problem so it’s important to get it checked by a dentist to prevent further damage and treat the pain. Some causes can include tooth decay, cracked and chipped teeth, impacted wisdom teeth and even gum disease.
Treatment For Toothache
Treatment for toothache usually depends on the actual cause of the pain. Our dentists will first help relieve the pain through medication or other treatment, then assess the tooth to identify what the underlying cause is. Once identified the appropriate treatment plan will be discussed with you.
What Can Happen If You Ignore Toothache
If a toothache is ignored the pain can become a lot worst and even unbearable. In addition to the excruciating pain, the underlying cause can result in more serious dental problems like gum disease and tooth loss.
