New Jersey Dentist Reveals The Reasons Toothaches Occur
Many people have had a tooth ache before; but most people, unless it’s unbearable, don’t do anything for it. Anyone who has had a toothache knows it is very painful, uncomfortable and can cause sleeping habits to be interrupted.
There are many reasons a toothache can occur and people with a tooth ache will do just about anything to get rid of it. This is why Teaneck residents have turn to one of New Jersey’s talented cosmetic dentist who is an expert on curing painful toothaches.
Toothache and jaw pain are common complaints. A Toothache is caused by tooth or jaw problems, such as large cavities, a cracked tooth, exposure of the tooth root, gum disease, disease of the jaw joint, or spasms of the muscles used for chewing. The pain can be mild to severe. A thorough oral examination which includes dental X-rays, can help determine the cause, whether the toothache is coming from a tooth or jaw problem.
There may be severe pain to pressure, or to hot or cold stimuli. The pain may persist for longer than 15 seconds after the stimulus is removed. As the area of inflammation increases, the pain becomes more severe. It may radiate to the cheek, the ear, or the jaw.
Other signs and symptoms that may lead to seek care include the following:
• Pain with chewing
• Hot or cold sensitivity
• Bleeding or discharge from around a tooth or gum
• Swelling around a tooth or swelling of the jaw
• Injury or trauma to the area
These signs and symptoms most of the time are associated with dental decay or gum disease. Dental decay or an area of redness around the tooth’s gum line may point to the source of pain. If one taps an infected tooth, it may make the pain more intense. This sign may point to the problem tooth even if the tooth appears normal.
Dr. Sherzoy says, “For most common causes of toothache, the prognosis is good with appropriate dental care. Following good dental hygiene, such as brushing with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing, and routine check-ups by us, helps to prevent dental problems.”
Practicing good oral hygiene can prevent toothaches since the cause of toothaches are tooth decay. Good oral hygiene practices consist of brushing regularly with a fluoride-containing toothpaste, flossing once daily, and seeing Dr. Sherzoy at Bogota Dental Center twice a year for professional cleaning. In addition to these practices, eat foods low in sugar and ask your dentist about sealants and fluoride applications.
