I’m in Pain

You’ve cracked a tooth. Or maybe your gums have been swelling up and hurting after flossing. Or that nagging toothache you’ve had for months won’t seem to go away. Whatever the source of pain in your mouth, you avoid the dentist at all costs. Do you know the saying “it’s like pulling teeth?” For many people, going to the dentist is the equivalent of this, even if no teeth are technically removed. Because many people don’t enjoy the dentist, they put off dealing with the pain that keeps them from experiencing life to the fullest. After all, teeth are crucial to things like feeling confident in your smile or even simple things like enjoying your favorite meal.

Common Symptoms of Tooth Pain

There’s no one sole trigger of mouth pain. Here are some common pain symptoms we see and possible treatment options for each.
– Sharp pain when eating: This unbearable pain is often a sign of decay, a loose filling or a crack. Depending on the severity, we may recommend a filling or a root canal to return you to a pain-free mouth.
– Lingering pain after eating hot or cold foods: Deep pulp decay or some sort of physical trauma may be causing extreme sensitivity. In certain cases, we may recommend a root canal.
– Pressure and aching sensation in upper jaw: You may grind your teeth at night without even realizing it. This is technically referred to as bruxism and is best treated based on an evaluation.
– Swelling and abscesses: In severe cases, often from dental neglect, patients may find themselves with swelling from an abscessed tooth. This is commonly caused by a tooth or gum infection. Our team of dentist will assess the problem area to determine the best type of treatment. Temporary solutions to treat pain from abscess tooth could be through the use of medication. However, the best course of action is to schedule a reservation with our oral health experts.

These are only a handful of examples of tooth pain that we help alleviate. No problem is too big or too small for us to handle. We recommend you address problems as promptly as possible to ensure things don’t escalate.
