Discovering the causes of a toothache causing you pain could help you when it comes to reversing the pain. Here at our dental office in Nacogdoches, Texas, we are happy to help you with your toothache, which is why we have provided you the common causes of toothaches.
There are many reasons a toothache can occur. Some of these include any form of accidents or sports injuries, cracked or chipped teeth, the root of a tooth becoming exposed or inflamed, gum disease, food stuck in teeth, and the most common source is cavities.
Cavities can happen from a lack of oral health care hygiene, too much exposure to sugars, or bacteria nesting in your tooth unable to be cleaned. That is why keeping up with your dental appointments are vital to the health of your smile so you can prevent toothaches and other situations like cavities or gum disease from happening. If you do have a toothache, please be sure to call Dr. Summer Enlow right away and make an appointment.
Until your visit, having a cool compress or taking over-the-pain medications can help when you have a toothache. However, remember to come to our office to discover the cause of the problem. If you have any questions or concerns about your oral care, please call us today at 936-564-9730 to set up an appointment. Our team is happy to help take away your pain and help you smile.
