Are you wondering how to ease your uncomfortable toothache? If so, you have come to the right place! Toothaches can happen at any moment, leaving you with a long and unpleasant day of throbbing. That is why our dentist, Dr. Collins here at Texas Teeth in Mesquite, Texas, is happy to help you ease your toothache.
Toothaches can happen from many different things, such as a severe fall that chipped a tooth, eating tough or hard foods that caused a tooth to crack, or a cavity that has developed deep near the root of your tooth. The most common cause of a toothache is an abscessed tooth, which is an infection that hides deep inside your tooth often caused by tooth decay. When bacteria enters your tooth through a cavity or the crack in your existing tooth, it can affect the nerves in your tooth and risk the life of the tooth causing intense pain.
To begin, the first step to healing a toothache starts with visiting your dentist. Our team of specialists are ready to assist with your toothaches and help you find the exact source of the problem. If you are experiencing an abscessed tooth, depending on the harshness of the infection antibiotics might be needed. In other cases, a deep cleaning of the tooth might be required, or a root canal treatment can help too. Flossing is also useful with a toothache in case the source of the pain is caused by something small like a seed stuck in between your teeth.
