In this post, the team at Thompson & Frey in Owensboro are going to explore tooth pain, and the secret life of teeth.
Toothaches are usually caused by sensitivity to the affected tooth’s nerve, and most often that sensitivity is the result of tooth decay, injury, or infection.
There is also the possibility of gum disease or a fracture to the tooth. Less often, a toothache is caused by a sinus infection.
If you have a toothache that lasts longer than two days, make an appointment with us. We’ll get you in as soon as possible. For really bad cases, we offer emergency dental care.
If the cause of your toothache turns out to be a cavity, we’ll determine its severity and decide on treatment. Extraction is always a possibility, or even a root canal. But in most cases a filling will fix it.
