Frequently Asked Questions
About Toothache

There are many causes of toothache. It can be challenging to determine the exact cause without seeing a dentist. However, here are some of the most common causes of toothache:

  • Tooth Decay:
    Tooth decay is the root cause of most toothaches. When bacteria grow in your mouth, they can create cavities. When these small holes in your teeth are left unchecked for too long, the pulp containing nerves and blood vessels is vulnerable to bacteria. This can lead to a painful toothache.

  • Impacted Wisdom Tooth:
    When a wisdom tooth is impacted, it means that it has not grown in the proper place and is pressing against surrounding structures. This can cause tooth pain and irritation, and worsen if unaddressed.

  • Gum Disease:
    If you have gum disease, the gums around your teeth are inflamed. This can cause tooth sensitivity, pain, and swelling.

  • Infection:
    Infection can cause inflammation and pain in the affected area. It may manifest as a throbbing or sharp toothache. This is usually caused by bacteria that have entered the tooth through a crack or chip.

  • Tooth Fracture:
    If you have a cracked or chipped tooth, it can cause pain. It can expose the nerve endings in your teeth, which can lead to discomfort.

  • Trauma:
    Trauma or injury to the teeth can also cause toothache. A direct blow to the mouth or an accident can cause damage to underlying dental structures like the tooth roots or bone.

If you are experiencing a toothache, schedule an appointment at our clinic as soon as possible. Our dental team will be able to determine the cause of your tooth pain and provide treatment options.

  • Tooth Sensitivity:
    Sensitivity of the teeth to hot or cold temperatures may indicate an impending toothache. This can be a sharp pain when eating or drinking something particularly hot or cold.

  • Swelling:
    Redness, swelling, and tenderness around the affected tooth or tissue surrounding it can be a sign of an upcoming toothache. This can often be accompanied by throbbing, radiating pain that worsens with movement or pressure.

  • Bad Taste in the Mouth or Persistent Bad Breath:
    These may indicate an underlying tooth infection and inflammation in the area surrounding the tooth. Also, foul-smelling discharge around the gums may be a red flag for an upcoming toothache.

  • Jaw Stiffness and Muscle Spasm:
    The muscles in your jaw are used for chewing. So when they start to feel sore or tight, it’s often a sign that something is wrong with one or more of your teeth.

If these signs appear, visit our clinic to learn more about your tooth condition.

A toothache can be painful and uncomfortable. In most cases, it may require professional treatment and care. However, there are also many things that you can do at home to manage your toothache and alleviate some of the discomforts that come along with it.

Here are a few things you can do at home to manage toothache:

  • Take Over-the-Counter Medications:
    Over-the-counter pain medications like ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help relieve the pain and reduce inflammation associated with toothache. They can be purchased at most pharmacies and are commonly safe to use along with other home remedies for managing toothache.

  • Apply Cold Compress:
    Applying a cold compress to the area around the tooth can also help relieve tooth pain and discomfort. Hold a wrapped ice pack or cold compress on the cheek near the affected tooth for several minutes throughout the day.

  • Use Clove Oil:
    Rubbing clove oil on the gums near the affected tooth is another way to manage toothache at home. Clove oil has natural analgesic properties that can help numb tooth pain and reduce inflammation.

  • Use Saltwater Solution:
    Gargle or rinse your mouth with saltwater. It can help cleanse the mouth of bacteria that may be contributing to the problem.

  • Practise Good Oral Hygiene:
    Maintain good oral hygiene practices such as regularly brushing your teeth and flossing. This will help alleviate toothache symptoms and prevent complications from developing over time.

It is possible to manage some forms of toothache at home. However, seeking professional dental care remains an appropriate approach for addressing this condition and preventing long-term complications or damage.

Visit our clinic if you are experiencing symptoms of a toothache. Our team can diagnose the cause of your toothache. They can also provide treatment options to manage your symptoms and prevent further complications.

If you are experiencing a toothache, you must address the issue as soon as possible. Failure to do so can result in more severe complications, such as increased pain and infection, damage to your teeth and gums, and even the potential for spreading infection to other areas of your body.

Schedule a visit to our clinic if you are experiencing a toothache and want to return to feeling healthy and comfortable again. With proper care and attention, you can manage your toothache and restore your oral health to have a bright and healthy smile for years.
