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.
