Tooth pain can stem from various causes, including:
- Tooth decay: Bacteria in the mouth produce acid that eats away at the tooth’s enamel and dentin, leading to a cavity, making tooth decay one of the most frequent causes of tooth pain.
- Gum disease: Periodontal disease or gum infection can lead to tooth pain, particularly if left untreated.
- Tooth abscess: A bacterial infection can cause the formation of pus in the tooth or gums, resulting in a tooth abscess. This condition is painful and requires immediate treatment.
- Cracked or broken teeth: Deep cracks or breaks in teeth can expose the sensitive inner layers of the tooth, resulting in tooth pain.
- Teeth grinding: Grinding or clenching teeth can exert pressure on them and cause wear and tear, resulting in tooth pain.
At Enhance Dental at Heritage, we understand that tooth pain can arise from various causes, and we offer a range of treatments to address them. Here are a few examples:
- Fillings: For tooth pain resulting from decay, we may recommend a filling to fix the cavity and relieve the discomfort.
- Scaling and root planing: If your tooth pain results from gum disease, we may suggest a deep cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing to eliminate bacteria and promote healing.
- Root canal therapy: If tooth pain is due to an abscess, we may suggest root canal therapy to eliminate the infected tissue and save the tooth.
- Dental bonding or a crown: If tooth pain results from a broken or cracked tooth, we may suggest dental bonding or a crown to restore the tooth’s structure and function.
At Enhance Dental at Heritage, we offer a variety of treatments to address jaw pain, depending on the underlying cause. One common cause of jaw pain is temporomandibular disorder (TMD), which affects the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. For TMD-related jaw pain, we may recommend physical therapy exercises to relieve muscle tension and improve jaw mobility. Additionally, we may suggest a custom-fitted nightguard to protect your teeth and reduce pressure on your jaw.
Our dental professionals are experienced in identifying the underlying causes of dental pain and developing personalized treatment plans to alleviate discomfort and restore oral health. We are committed to providing compassionate care and helping our patients achieve healthy, pain-free smiles.
