Potential Causes for Toothaches
Finding the underlying cause of your dental pain or discomfort is the first step toward remedying your dental emergency. A toothache may be intense, sharp pain surrounding one or more of your dental structures. It may also be consistent, throbbing pain in a general area of your mouth. Our doctors will evaluate your toothache to treat the underlying cause, which may include:
- Abscessed tooth
- Tooth fracture
- Damaged fillings
- TMJ disorders
- Teeth grinding
- Gum disease
By treating the underlying cause of your toothache, not only will we relieve your pain and discomfort at the moment but we will also prevent future toothaches from occurring.
