Are you currently suffering from a bad toothache? We can help relieve your pain. Call our office 9629-7664.

At one time or another, almost everyone has probably experienced some degree of tooth pain, from minor aches and sensitivity to acute distress. In general, the sensation of pain is a protective response that tells the body something is wrong. But when it affects your teeth, the exact source of the pain can be difficult to pinpoint; it may also come and go in response to other stimuli, like eating hot foods. So what is tooth pain signaling, and what should you do about it?

The most common cause of dental pain is tooth decay, a bacterial infection that can spread through many parts of the tooth, and even into the gum tissue. Traumatic damage and gum disease can also result in tooth pain.

The only sure way to know what's causing tooth pain is to see a dentist, who will ask detailed questions about what you're feeling and perform diagnostic tests, such as x-rays, to try and identify the exact source of the pain. However, there are some general ways to describe the sensations you may be experiencing and their potential cause.

Any dental emergency like an injury to the teeth or gums can be potentially serious and should not be ignored.Ignoring a dental problem can increase the risk of permanent damage as well as the need for more extensive and expensive treatment later on.



Dental Emergency : What To Do If You Have a Toothache

A severe toothache can signal nerve damage or an infection. It is important that you keep the area free of bacteria and debris.Rinse the mouth out with warm water to clean it out. Gently use dental floss or an interdental cleaner to ensure that there is no food or other debris caught between the teeth. Never put aspirin or any other painkiller against the gums near the aching tooth because it may burn the gum tissue. If the pain persists, call us for an emergency dentist Melbourne appointment at 9629-7664

Dental Emergency : Abscess on the Tooth

Abscesses are infections that occur around the root of a tooth or in the space between the teeth and gums. Abscesses are a serious condition that can damage tissue and surrounding teeth, with the infection possibly spreading to other parts of the body if left untreated. If you have a severe throbbing pain and the tooth feels as though it is raised out of the socket and is loose, try using a mouthwash consisting of a teaspoonful of salt in a glass of warm water. Hold each mouthful for about one minute and repeat the procedure 3 times daily. Never put heat on the outside of the face. Call us immediately for an emergency dentist Melbourne appointment at 9629-7664.

Severe Pain /Root Canal Emergencies

Constant, severe pain and pressure, swelling of the gums, and sensitivity to touch indicate an infection in the tooth, possibly accompanied by an abscess (inflamed, pus-filled sac) in the surrounding gum and bone tissue. In this case, it's important to see a dentist or endodontist right away not only to relieve the pain, but also to save the tooth while it's still possible. Treatment may include a root canal to remove diseased or dying pulp tissue, and/or periodontal procedures to drain the abscess and stop the infection.

Lingering pain after eating hot or cold foods usually indicates disease in the pulp tissue deep inside the tooth. Deep decay or physical trauma to the tooth may have allowed bacteria to infect the pulp tissue or compromise the pulp vitality. As nerves inside the pulp tissue die, the pain may go away, but the infection won't in fact, it can spread and cause significant damage. Make an appointment to see a dental professional as soon as possible; a root canal may be needed to ease the pain and preserve the tooth.

Sharp pain when biting down on food can be caused by severe tooth decay, a loose filling, a crack in the tooth, or possibly by damaged pulp tissue inside the tooth. It should be evaluated by a dentist as soon as possible. Depending on the cause, treatment may involve filling, bonding, root canal therapy, or other procedures.

Call us immediately for an emergency dentist Melbourne appointment at 9629-7664.

Toothache Emergencies

Occasional or momentary sensitivity to hot or cold foods may be caused by a tiny area of decay, a loose filling, or a small amount of gum recession that has exposed the roots of the teeth. To alleviate the symptoms, you can try using a soft brush and toothpaste formulated for sensitive teeth, for a couple of weeks. If that doesn't help, call the dental office to schedule and appointment. Dental treatment itself sometimes causes temporary sensitivity, which can often be relieved by the same methods. If pain persists or grows worse, however, be sure to seek treatment.

A severe sinus headache or congestion from colds or flu may cause you to experience symptoms such as a dull ache or pressure in the upper teeth and jaw. When the illness goes away, the dental distress should cease too. Tooth clenching or grinding (bruxism) has also been known to cause this type of discomfort. If you have these habits, you may want to have a nightguard made at the dental office to protect your teeth and jaws from too much force.

No matter what type of tooth pain or discomfort you are experiencing, it is important to seek treatment if it persists.

Treatment options in main emergencies if you have a painful tooth

1. Root Canal Therapy- as a result from abscess and tooth decay.

Root Canal (Endodontic) Therapy involves saving an infected tooth from having to be removed. Root Canal Therapy conserves a tooth that has been damaged by decay, fracture or an abscess. The tooth can then be restored without the need for an extraction. We never want you to lose any teeth and most of our patients dont want this either. We will always find you the best possible treatment to help you keep your tooth.

Some indications root canal therapy may be required include:

Lingering tooth sensitivity to cold liquids
Lingering tooth sensitivity to hot liquids
Tooth sensitivity to sweets
Tooth pain to biting pressure
Impulsive toothache, such as that experienced while reading a book, walking or other normal daily activities
Constant or intermittent tooth pain
Severe tooth pain
Throbbing tooth pain
Tooth pain that may occur in response to atmospheric pressure changes such as when flying or scuba diving
Tissue swelling of the face

 

Root Canal Therapy can typically be deferred for a day or two with over-the-counter painkillers to reduce the immediate pain and inflammation. We do recommend that you visit us as soon as possible for treatment to avoid any aggravated problems as the pain may also be a sign of something else.

 

2. Emergency Tooth Extraction

At our office, we believe that a tooth extraction is the last resort. As an alternative to an extraction we will always recommend Root Canal Therapy if the tooth can be saved, to retain the health, function and comfort of your mouth. Even if you have significant tooth decay, there are numerous restorative treatments that we can recommend, such as porcelain crowns rather than tooth extraction.

Tooth extraction has a number of unwanted and unnecessary side effects including misaligning and spreading of the teeth that can affect the look of your smile. Missing teeth can also have a dramatic affect on your ability to chew food effectively. To avoid any risk of tooth loss, we recommend you have your teeth checked every six months.
