There are many causes of dental pain and it’s important not to ignore the signs of problems because it can lead to bigger issues.
- If you experience periodic sensitivity to hot and cold that doesn’t last, you may have tooth decay or a cavity.
- If your pain occurs during biting or chewing, you may have decay, a loose filling, or a fractured tooth. Treatment will be required soon to keep the problem from getting worse.
- Lingering pain after eating hot or cold foods could mean that your root is inflamed from decay or trauma. A root canal may be necessary for relief.
- Acute pain that is hard to pinpoint may indicate an infection. This condition could indicate an abscess and will likely need a root canal to repair the damage.
Don’t wait for the pain to get worse or for it to go away on its own. Contact your dentist right away to get the necessary treatment so that infection doesn’t spread or become worse.
Traumatic Dental Injuries
Chipped teeth are the most common dental injuries, usually resulting from sports, falls or other accidents. Chipped teeth can be repaired with dental bonding, smoothing, veneers or crowns depending on the severity of the break.
When a tooth is dislodged or knocked out it may be possible to save it, but it’s important to get to your dentist right away. Your dentist may be able to reposition the tooth and save it with a root canal. If the tooth is completely out of your mouth, handle it with great care, avoid touching the root surface, and get to your dentist immediately. In this case, time is of the essence!
