One of the most common causes of a toothache is an abscessed tooth, which is an infection that is deep inside your tooth often caused by tooth decay. When nasty bacteria enters your tooth through a cavity or a crack in your existing tooth, it can hurt the nerves in your tooth causing intense discomfort.
When it comes to a toothache, the first step to healing a it begins with visiting your dentist. Our dental team is ready to assist with your toothaches and help you find the exact source of the problem. If you are suffering from an abscessed tooth, depending on the growth of the infection antibiotics might be needed. Sometimes, a deep cleaning of the tooth and all surrounding teeth might be required, or a root canal treatment can help too. Did you know, flossing is also useful with a toothache? This is because the source of the pain could be caused by something small like a seed stuck in between your teeth.
