What causes a toothache?

A toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. A simple toothache can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. However, a toothache can also be caused by a cavity, decay, or gum disease.

We’re heard of some patients placing an aspirin between a tooth and their gums to relieve pain, but a dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue! Don’t try to relieve a toothache all alone. Make an appointment with us to find out the cause of it.

What about a toothache from broken, fractured, or displaced teeth?

A broken, fractured or displaced tooth is usually not a cause for alarm as long as decisive, quick action is taken. If a tooth has been knocked out or severely damaged, call Tabor Dental Associates right away. We can talk you through saving your tooth and get you an appointment.

If the tooth fracture is minor, the tooth can be restored if the pulp is not severely damaged.

If a child’s primary tooth has been loosened by an injury or an emerging permanent tooth, let us know, so we can help.

Stop the toothache pain! Call Tabor Dental Associates now.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of the upper and lower adult mouth.

Unfortunately, most people experience problems from wisdom teeth; in most cases, this is because the teeth erupt too close to existing permanent teeth. Improper wisdom teeth eruption can cause crowding, improper bites, and other problems.

If wisdom teeth are causing you problems, this could mean that they are impacted. Wisdom teeth that are impacted can be extremely painful as well as harmful to your oral health. Symptoms are easy to spot: pain, inflammation, and some kinds of infections.

Many people need to have their wisdom teeth extracted to avoid future serious problems. In general, the lack of the four wisdom teeth does not hamper one’s ability to properly bite down, speak, or eat.

Call Tabor Dental Associates right away if your wisdom teeth— or the teeth around them— are hurting!
