Major causes of Toothache
What other problems can be seen by an after hours dentist in Sydney?
Toothache is caused by many different factors. It is not only irritating, but it can distract you from focusing on daily tasks such as working and eating depending on the severity.
The dental pain can become so chronic that you become bedridden by it.
Of course if this occurs then contact us immediately to get this toothache fixed.
Dental pain comes in many forms as well.
It can be severe, mild, constant, lingering, and can become worse when exposed to cold or hot temperatures or chewing.
The top four major causes of toothache include:
1. Toothache due to Tooth Decay
Occurs when the bacteria has reached the roots of the teeth resulting in an abscess inside your tooth and also in the bone.
2. Toothache due to Fractured Tooth or Filling
An exposed nerve can cause an abscess as well as excruciating dental pain leading to a root canal treatment.
3. Toothache due to Gum Disease
4. Toothache due to Wisdom Tooth pain
If there is no space for a wisdom tooth to come out then it gets trapped under the bone and gums.
The gums can then collect food and bacteria leading to an infection that results in severe pain.
These are the most common, so there could be other factors that may cause dental pain.
In order to find out the cause we will need to perform a quick examination of your mouth.
What are my options for Dental Pain
There are a few options we take to take care of the toothache that you have developed. We will let you know exactly what needs to be done to fix your tooth pain after the initial examination.
Removal of the Tooth (Tooth Extraction)
In the case that the bacteria have already infected the tooth and make it so it is impossible to cleanse, the tooth will have to be removed to get rid of the toothache.
There are consequences for tooth extractions that can develop such as overcrowding and misalignment, which is why you should look into restoring the space with another tooth.
Cavities may be the reason for your tooth pain.
If so, we will remove the infected parts of the tooth and replace them with a filling.
Fillings will both cure the problem and prevent tooth pain from reoccurring once again.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The treatment for this is removal of the wisdom teeth.
We can organise your wisdom teeth removal (whilst you sleep) at our super clinic.
Periodontal Treatment (Gum Treatment)
If gum disease is the cause of your dental pain, then a periodontal treatment must be done to get rid of it.
The exact procedure done depends on the severity and type of periodontal disease that you have.
In mild cases, a thorough dental cleaning is all that is needed to cure gum disease and tooth pain.
In severe cases we need to do a deep clean with LASERS.
Gum disease is typically the result of poor oral hygiene, so if this was the cause then make sure to brush and floss twice per day on a daily basis in order to avoid any painful conditions from developing.
Root Canal Treatment
Severe dental pain can be the result of bacteria attacking the roots of your teeth.
If the decay has not yet destroyed the surrounding gums and bone, then the tooth can be saved with a root canal treatment.
In this treatment we will remove the dead nerves and infected pus, disinfect the area, and then fill it in with a special filling, to protect the teeth from bacteria.
