Toothache Pain

Toothache is often a sign that something is wrong.

It Should Be Addressed Immediately to Prevent Tooth Loss.

Do you have a toothache? You’re not alone! 

Toothaches are one of the most common dental complaints and can be caused by a variety of factors. Knowing what causes a toothache can help you prevent and treat one.

Toothaches can be caused by decay, infection, trauma, or grinding. 

  • Decay is caused by bacteria that produce acid and wear away the enamel of your teeth. This can lead to a cavity, which causes a toothache.
  • Infection can occur when bacteria get into your tooth or gums and cause inflammation. This can be due to poor oral hygiene, gum disease, or a cracked tooth. If the infection is left untreated, it can lead to toothache.
  • Trauma can be caused by an accident or injury that affects the teeth or gums. This can lead to a toothache and can also cause damage to the nerves in your teeth, which can cause sharp, intense pain.
  • Grinding your teeth can put too much pressure on your teeth and cause them to become sensitive. This can be caused by stress or an incorrect bite and can lead to toothache.

Toothache pain is caused by a reaction of the nerves inside a tooth’s (or multiple teeth) pulp chamber and is the body’s way of telling you that something is wrong.

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, it’s important to address it immediately in order to prevent tooth loss.

Your dentist can diagnose the cause of your toothache and provide the best treatment plan. Taking care of your teeth and gums is the best way to prevent toothaches and keep your smile healthy.

We can diagnose and repair cracked teeth, loose filings, and other conditions that may be causing your pain. 

We can also provide treatment if the pain is constant and severe, as this may be an indication of an infection or abscess that has spread into surrounding periodontal tissues and bone from the pulp of the tooth.

We provide gentle, compassionate, and reliable treatment to help you get back to feeling your best.

Toothache: FAQ

A filling alone will very rarely solve your toothache. Many toothaches need a Root Canal or an extraction, to be treated. Just because you don;t experience any discomfort, you are not assured of having any Cavities!
Toothaches can be caused by an infected or dying nerve, infected gums or too much force on a tooth. Is it an early sign of a cavity? A toothache is never an early sign of a cavity. Early decay almost never hurts. It is usually a very late sign of a cavity.

Dr. Blum, Dr. Dakwar, and staff are friendly, caring, and accommodating. The office is welcoming and conveniently located adjacent to 12 Corners. I’m happy to recommend them to family and friends.

I have been going to this dentist office for the past two years. The hygienists are great, and everyone in the office makes you feel comfortable and welcome. I have also had work done by Dr. Blum on a couple different occasions. He does a fantastic job and he makes sure that you are comfortable throughout.


Monica Anderson

The dental care provided me by Dr. Blum and his staff is one well grounded in the very best educational and professional standards available. The whole staff models a standard of excellence while being friendly and polite. Respect and genuine caring have been my experiences in a spotlessly clean, cheerful environment where my time is respected, as is theirs. Any urgent matter is given the utmost care and concern should the need arise outside office hours.


Heather Cook-smith

Friendly staff, gentle but thorough hygienist. Dr. Blum is a personable expert who treats his patients as if they're family.


Carl Kesselring

I have been going to Dr Blum's office for over 30 years. When he moved his office to the other side of the city I decided it was worth the trip to stay there. I don't think you can get better dental care anywhere else.
