Cavities and tooth decay, if left untreated, will lead to toothaches, and root canals.
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.
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.
