Tooth Pain: Remember, It Could Be So Many Things

When you experience tooth pain, you may immediately assume it’s something in particular. However, what you may not realize is that when you attempt to self-diagnose, you are up against the fact that toothaches and general discomfort can point to a very long list of possible problems. As a result, it’s best to let our professional dental team sort out the details, so you waste no time and, instead, receive the information and dental care that your smile needs!

Possibly Sensitivity

You may be dealing with a tooth that’s just sensitive. Tooth pain may mean that a tooth is still healing after recent dental work, that your tooth is sensitive due to thinning enamel, that you just happen to deal with sensitivity and need to use special toothpaste, etc. Learn more with us.

Maybe A Cavity

Your instincts that you have a cavity may be spot on! In many instances, tooth pain is letting you know that you are experiencing tooth decay when nerves in your tooth become exposed.

You May Have An Infection

Sometimes, infections go on for a while without any symptoms. However, early tooth pain or discomfort later on in the game may signify this serious problem, which requires that we see you ASAP!

It Could Be Your Gums

You may think your tooth hurts but what you’re really feeling is some serious discomfort as the result of injured gum tissue or possible gum disease.

Your Dental Work May Be Damaged

If you’ve lost a filling, your crown has become damaged, etc., this can cause tooth pain! See our team for a visit, so we may determine the exact cause.
