Almost everyone has been there at one point or another. If you haven't been on top of your dental hygiene or attended a regular dental check up, then you might not have realised that you have tooth decay. Tooth decay is the main cause of toothache around the teeth and jaws. If you are suffering then you might need to see our Cardiff based emergency dentist.
Are you experiencing a lot of pain in your teeth or jaws?
The pain caused by tooth decay can vary between patients. For some people it might be quite mild or incredibly severe. The pain can start suddenly as a quick, sharp ache that is continual or intermittent. You might find that the pain gets progressively more unbearable at night when you are lying down.
Other causes of toothache might be losing a filling or breaking a tooth, which can also lead to a considerable amount of pain if not treated immediately.
I'm experiencing severe pain. What is causing it?
There could be many reasons for this pain. Most commonly tooth ache is a result of tooth decay, gum disease, broken teeth or any other trauma that causes an opening in the tooth enamel.
These accessible areas are a perfect place for bacteria to infect the pulp or the centre of the tooth. The tooth then develops a painful infection in these areas causing an abscess in the tooth or gum. This infection if left untreated can then spread from the root of the tooth to the bones supporting the tooth.
Other causes of the pain could be a cracked tooth that is often so small that it cant be seen. In order to detect these cracks you will need to see a dentist immediately and received an x-ray of your jaw.
What should I do?
Have you been in pain for longer than one or two days? You will need to see a dentist immediately to be diagnosed and treated.
You might find that painkillers like paracetamol and ibuprofen are helping to ease the pain, but they will not solve the problem. You still need to contact a dentist as the pain will only return and develop into a severe and continuous throbbing. Act now before it gets any worse!
