Are you suffering from a toothache? Here at Staten Island Dental Care we understand that toothaches are no fun, and Dr. Hecht actually has a great deal of experience treating them. Don’t suffer through tooth pain any longer—get in here to see us before the problem gets worse!
Toothaches can be caused by many different things. The most common causes of tooth pain are the following:
- Dental Cavities. Cavities are the most common dental problem for adults and children alike. While they are generally small holes in the outer layer of the tooth, they can grow and cause more pain when left untreated.
- Cracked Teeth. Whether a crack is due to trauma, dental decay, or biting down too hard on some hard food, cracked teeth are dangerous. Cracks can break through the outer enamel of your tooth, letting bacteria into the inner nerves and causing pain.
- Gum Disease. Though it may not seem like a serious problem, serious gum disease can spread to your teeth. This is why it is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults.
- Exposed Tooth Roots. If your gums start to wear away due to over-brushing or gum disease, it can leave your sensitive tooth roots exposed. This may cause extra pain when eating hot or cold foods.
- TMJ Problems. Your temporomandibular joints, or TMJ, are the joints that connect your jawbone to your skull. Unfortunately, when you have a problem with the TMJ, it can cause pain throughout your head, mouth, and teeth.
If you are experiencing any sort of toothache and pain, come into our office for a consultation. After a simple X-ray procedure, Dr. Hecht can help determine the cause of the toothache and treat the issue.
If you are unable to visit our office in Staten Island right away, there are some things you can do for toothache relief. Rinse your tooth with warm water and make sure that nothing is lodged. Apply an ice pack and/or take a pain reliever to reduce swelling. Make sure to come see us as soon as possible!
