Tooth Pain and Discomfort

Cavities, gum disease, infections, and more can lead to sharp or persistent pain, affecting your overall well-being. At Peerzada Smiles, we're here to help you understand, alleviate, and prevent tooth pain.

Our skilled team offers several procedures, including fillings, root canals, extractions, and dental restorations.

Common Causes of Tooth Pain

Tooth Decay and Cavities

Cavities develop when bacteria erode the tooth's protective enamel. Once decay reaches the pulp, you may start feeling severe pain and need immediate attention.

Gum Disease

Inflammation and infection of the gums can lead to tooth sensitivity and pain.

Tooth Infection (Abscess)

An untreated cavity or injury can result in a painful infection within the tooth or gums.

Tooth Sensitivity

Sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweet foods and drinks are a common consequence of exposed dentin or enamel.

Cracked or Chipped Teeth

Damage to the tooth's structure can cause sharp, intermittent pain.

Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)

Clenching or grinding your teeth can wear them down and put extra pressure on your jaw. As a result, you may experience headaches and tooth pain.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

The emergence of wisdom teeth can cause discomfort, especially if they become impacted or misaligned.

When Should I See a Dentist for Tooth Pain?

  • You need to book a consult a dentist when:
  • Pain that persists for more than a day or two.
  • You notice signs of infection, such as swelling or fever.
  • Bleeding or discharge occurs from the affected area.
  • A tooth becomes loose or damaged.

What Can a Dentist Do for Tooth Pain?

Dentists are trained to diagnose the cause of your tooth pain and provide appropriate treatment, which may include:

  • Fillings for cavities.
  • Root canals to treat infections.
  • Extractions for severely damaged teeth.
  • Dental restorations to repair cracked or chipped teeth, such as crowns, dentures, and implants.
  • Custom mouthguards to prevent teeth grinding.

How Can I Prevent Tooth Pain and Discomfort?

  • Brush and floss regularly to maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Schedule regular check-ups and cleanings with your dentist.
  • Limit consumption of sugary and acidic foods and drinks.
  • Use a mouthguard if you grind your teeth.
