Common Causes Of Toothaches


Posted on 5/22/2023 by Premier Dental
Common Causes Of ToothachesToothaches are common and affect people of all ages. It can be mild discomfort or severe pain that makes eating and sleeping difficult and interrupts your daily activities. You can get toothaches due to decay, injury, or infection.

Ensure that you visit the dentist when you experience any form of toothache to determine the root cause. Below are the most common causes of toothaches.

Gum Disease


You can get gum diseases when tartar and plaque form around your teeth and gums. When you have gum diseases, the gums recede and expose the tooth roots, causing pain and sensitivity. You need to know the measures to take to ensure you prevent yourself from having gum diseases.

One of the common ways to prevent gum disease is by brushing and flossing regularly. Also, ensure that you visit the dentist when necessary and for checkups. The dentist may recommend deep cleaning or scaling to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums.

Tooth Decay


When you don't brush your teeth regularly, food particles and bacteria accumulate in your mouth, forming plaque. As time passes, the acid in the plaque will eat up the enamel, leading to cavities. You may now start experiencing pain and discomfort when you eat or drink.

The dentist will show you the methods to obtain oral hygiene habits. Know the time you need to spend brushing your teeth and how to floss properly. If the dentist finds a cavity, you might get a filling or crown to repair the damage.

Tooth Injury


Tooth injury may be because of a broken tooth, cracked, or chipped, and can cause pain, especially when eating or drinking. There are some cases where it can cause sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures. When you notice you have a tooth injury, ensure you visit the dentist immediately.

The dentist will then find the appropriate solution for you. For instance, you can get a filling, crown, or root canal, depending on the damage. Contact our dentist when you experience any form of toothache.
