A toothache is usually pain around the teeth or jaw. In most cases, a toothache is due to a dental cavity, a cracked tooth, an exposed root, or gum disease. The severity of a toothache can range from chronic to mild to sharp to excruciating. The pain may be aggravated by chewing or from sensitivity to hot / cold temperatures. A thorough oral exmaination along with dental x-rays will determine the cause of the pain.
 
  • Dental Abscess-Bacteria is the main reason for a abscess. It begins when the bacteria invades and infects the tooth. This will result in a pus build-up and when it is unable to drain, an abscess will result. The most common factors for an abscess are tooth decay (cavities), a broken or cracked tooth that allows bacteria to enter the tooth. Some symptoms of a tooth abscess may include:
                  *Throbbing
                  *Hot and cold pain
                  *Sudden tooth pain 
                  *Redness, tenderness, or swelling of the gums
                  *Fever
                  *Bad Breath or foul taste in mouth
     If you have any of these symptoms, please call our office to schedule an appointment.
 
  • Broken Tooth-Although the enamel that covers your teeth is the hardest tissue in the body, its strength has limits. Falling, a blow to the face, or biting down on something hard, espeically if the tooth already has decay (a cavity) can cause a tooth to chip or even break. If you have a broken or chipped tooth, don't panic! There are many solutions we can do to fix it! The treatment for a broken or chipped tooth will depend on how severely it is damaged. If only a small piece of enamel broke off, we can usually repair it in one visit. A badly damaged or broken tooth may require a crown, and in some cases a root canal which can require two visits.  
 
  • Impacted Teeth-The teeth either become stuck under the gum or are only able to paritally break through the gum. Dentists call these teeth impacted. Wisdom teeth usually become impacted because the jaw doesn't have enough space for all the teeth that are growing in, or because the tooth comes in at the wrong angle and bumps into the tooth in front of it. Impacted wisdom teeth are very common. Although some people never have any trouble with them, impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems. An impacted tooth can sometime trap food, plaque, and other debris in the soft tissue around it, leading to swelling, gum tenderness, cavtities, and bad breath. Because they damage other teeth, or cause pain or infection, dentists often recommend removing impacted wisdom teeth.
