Toothaches are common, but that doesn’t mean they’re less painful. In fact, they can be so painful that they can make your day extremely difficult. When you have a toothache in Stamford, Connecticut, it’s best to determine the underlying cause so you can have the comfort you deserve. To help you find out what is causing your toothache, Dr. Allen Rosenthal would like to educate you on the many culprits that could be involved.
One of the most common causes of a toothache is something stuck between your teeth. If this is the case for you, it’s best to brush as well as floss your teeth. You can also rinse your mouth to loosen the particle.
Some more common causes of a toothache are damaged dental work or an infection. Sometimes a broken dental crown, dental bridge, or dental filling can apply pressure to the tooth and cause discomfort. An infection, like an abscess, can also cause a toothache. If you’re experiencing broken dental work or an infection, it’s best to visit your dentist or endodontist.
The last common cause of a toothache is tooth decay. If your tooth is suffering a cavity, it’s important to seek treatment right away. You can usually tell it’s a cavity causing the toothache if brushing, flossing, and rinsing as well as swishing with saltwater does not help.
