Dental Toothache

Dental Toothache

When your tooth aches, but you want to impress your friends, just say to them, "I have an odontalgia," – a toothache. Toothache, most times, means you experience pain from your tooth, the area surrounding your tooth, or your jaw line area. Your tooth pain results primarily from a dental condition as those listed here.

Sometimes, the toothache stems from the jaw joint.

Other medical factors cause tooth pain, for examples, a heart attack, an ear infection, or a sinus infection. A heart attack usually generates pain down the left arm or chest area. In rare occasions, a toothache or jaw pain indicates restricted blood flow to the heart muscle. Because of their close proximity to the teeth and jaw areas, ear and sinus infections sometimes spread into the tissues of the mouth and jaw and simulate the tooth pain associated with a dental condition.

At the onset of tooth pain, you want to call Titensor Dental to schedule an appointment. The way to determine the cause of your toothache involves Dr. Titensor or his hygienist taking a dental X-ray. When they know the source of your tooth pain, they recommend the restorative treatment.

Treat A Cavity Before It Becomes A Toothache

Regular dental care prevents and fights against cavities and tooth decay, but if you have a toothache or you experience tooth pain, these commonly signal a cavity. By the time you notice symptoms, the damage to your teeth is getting worse. Visit us at Titensor Dental as soon as possible.

In addition to pain, contact us if you develop any of these signs or symptoms:

  • Swollen gums that are red and tender
  • Gums that bleed
  • Gums that pull away from your teeth, which may make your teeth seem longer
  • A bad taste that lingers in your mouth
  • Bad breath that has no explanation
  • Teeth that are loose
  • Teeth that are out of alignment
  • Teeth that are sensitive to sweet and hot or cold foods or beverages
  • Pain that causes you to avoid brushing or cleaning certain teeth or areas
  • Pain that when you bite down or chew food or gum intensifies

If Dr. Titensor treats your cavity before you experience pain or develop any of the symptoms above, you may avoid the need for extensive treatment.

Again, scheduling a regular dental check up and dental cleaning, even when your mouth feels fine, and practicing good dental care habits are good, preventive measures for optimum dental care.
