Find out why dental pain should never go ignored.

 

You suddenly woke up with a terrible nagging pain in your tooth that doesn’t seem to quit. Or perhaps you notice that your tooth starts to Woman's Toothachebother you whenever you chew or bite down. It’s important to know that a toothache is a warning sign that something is going on. This symptom is also considered a dental emergency, which is why you should visit our Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist Dr. John Stockdale if you are dealing with dental pain of any kind. Here’s why:

It Could Be Decay

This is one of the most common reasons someone experiences a toothache, which is why this symptom shouldn’t go ignored. After all, decay won’t just go away on its own or heal itself. Once decay has damaged the enamel of your teeth the only option is to remove the decay to prevent it from spreading. The sooner you treat the issue the better. After the decay has been removed, our Rancho Cucamonga, CA, general dentist will place a dental filling.

You May Have a Fracture

There are many ways teeth can incur injuries, from biting down on something hard to being hit in the mouth while playing a contact sport. You may even notice the chip or crack, but not always; however, if your pain is the result of a fracture this usually means that the damage has affected the inside of the tooth. This kind of pain is usually pretty severe and persistent since the nerves of the teeth are now being impacted.

You Could Suffer from Sensitive Teeth

No, we don’t mean that your tooth has emotions, but tooth sensitivity means that you may experience lingering pain or discomfort after consuming something that is cold or hot. Temperature extremes are most likely to bring about tooth sensitivity; however, this could mean that your tooth has been worn down and the dentin layer (where the nerves of tooth are found) is exposed.

You Might Grind Your Teeth

This is a terrible habit that a lot of people have. Maybe you don’t even know you grind your teeth. This is because this usually happens at night. Unfortunately, teeth grinding can put excessive wear and tear on the tooth. On top of achy teeth, you may also notice a sore or stiff jawbone or frequent morning headaches.
