What causes tooth pain
If you’re experiencing tooth pain, then you’re most likely suffering from these:
- Tooth decay. When bacteria build up on your teeth, they produce acids that can eat away at your tooth enamel, causing cavities. As the cavity gets deeper, it can irritate the nerve of your tooth, causing pain.
- Gum disease. When bacteria infect your gums, they can cause inflammation and recession, exposing the sensitive roots of your teeth.
Other causes of tooth pain include:
- Tooth fractures
- Cracked teeth
- Tooth abscesses
These conditions can be caused by trauma to the mouth, biting down on hard objects, or poor dental hygiene.
As soon as you feel pain in your mouth, we strongly suggest scheduling an appointment with us. At MillBridge Dentistry, our experienced team can diagnose the underlying cause of your tooth pain and recommend the best treatment. Contact us today and get the relief you need!
Treatment options for tooth pain
At MillBridge Dentistry, we offer many treatments to restore your oral health. The specific treatment for your tooth pain will depend on the underlying cause of your discomfort.
If a cavity is causing your tooth pain, we may recommend a filling to restore your tooth’s structure and prevent further decay. Fillings are used to fill in small cavities.
Crowns are recommended for larger cavities or teeth that are severely damaged.
If your tooth pain is caused by an infection in the pulp of your tooth, we may treat it with a root canal procedure to remove the infection and preserve the tooth.
In some cases, more severe tooth pain may require tooth extraction to alleviate the discomfort. This is a last resort after other treatments have failed or if the tooth is severely damaged and cannot be saved.
At MillBridge Dentistry, Dr. Anait and Dr. Armen are committed to helping you achieve good oral health and a pain-free smile. Contact us today to schedule your appointment and learn more about our Waxhaw tooth pain treatment options!
Preventing tooth pain
Don’t skip your brushing
Brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily to remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums. This can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease, two common causes of tooth pain.
Eat a healthy diet
A diet that is high in sugar and carbohydrates can increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains to promote good oral and overall health.
Wear a mouthguard
If you participate in sports or other activities that can cause trauma to the mouth, wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth from injury.
Treat your teeth with kindness
Habits like nail-biting and chewing on ice or hard objects can damage your teeth and increase your risk of tooth pain. Avoid these habits to keep your teeth healthy and pain-free.
Schedule your regular dental cleanings and exams
Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can help catch and prevent dental issues before they become serious. Your dentist can also provide personalized advice to maintain good oral health and prevent tooth pain.
By following these tips, you can reduce your risk of tooth pain and maintain good oral health. At MillBridge Dentistry, we’re dedicated to helping you prevent tooth pain and other dental issues. Contact us today to schedule your appointment and learn how we can help you maintain your teeth healthy!
