What Your Tooth Pain Really Means

dental supplierYour worst fear has come true: your toothache has become intolerable and a trip to the dentist is no longer avoidable. Most people wait until their tooth is throbbing in a constant, intense pain before going to the dentist. What people need to realize is that a toothache is not synonymous with a tooth extraction or painful drilling. The type of pain you are experiencing can help lead you to the source of the problem:

  • Sharp tooth sensitivity or pain: Sensitivity to cold can mean gum recession, enamel loss, or a small cavity. Sensitivity to heat can also mean a small cavity or tooth decay.
  • Chronic toothache: Nerve damage is the most likely cause.
  • Intense, throbbing pain: This kind of pain is typically associated with an abscess or an infection.
  • Pain when eating: If it is painful to eat, tooth decay or a fracture in the tooth is probably the reason.
  • Pain in the back of your jaw: There are three possible reasons, impacted wisdom teeth, TMJ, or teeth grinding.

The only way to determine your cause is to face your fear and head on over to the dentist. It won’t be a fun experience, but with the help of some dental supplies, your dentist can help ease your pain.

Remember to always let Dealon Dental be your number one dental supplier!
