What Are the Most Common Causes of Toothaches?
Toothaches can be caused by minor dental issues or be the symptom of severe dental problems. That’s why it’s necessary to consult a dentist as soon as possible to assess the situation and take the required action.
The common causes of toothaches include:
- Tooth decay
- Oral injury or trauma
- Teeth grinding
- Infected gums
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Abscessed teeth
What Are the Treatment Options for Toothaches?
At Del Rey Dental in Dallas, Texas, the first step in treating a toothache is to determine the cause. Dr. Tadros will examine your teeth, check your medical history, and take X-rays to create a treatment plan.
Here are the treatments we offer for the most common causes of toothaches:
If cavities are causing your toothache, Dr. Tadros may recommend dental fillings or tooth extraction to curb the problem.
A chipped, broken, cracked, or loose tooth caused by trauma can lead to severe pain and discomfort. In such cases, restorative procedures like dental crowns or implants are the most common solution. If it’s an emergency, at Del Rey Dental, we offer same-day appointments and treatment.
A root canal is the standard treatment for toothaches caused by bacterial infections in the tooth pulp. Dr. Tadros will remove the infected pulp and clean and seal the tooth during a root canal treatment.
Sometimes, due to infections or cavities, a pocket of pus called abscess forms around the teeth. An abscess can lead to sharp, throbbing pain in and around the tooth area. Depending on the severity of your dental condition, Dr. Tadros may perform a tooth extraction, root canal, or surgery to treat the abscessed tooth.
What Is the Cost of Emergency Dental Services?
At Del Rey Dental, the cost of emergency dental services depends on your condition and the complexity of the treatment. The best way to avoid complicated and costly dental procedures is to maintain oral health and hygiene and regularly visit our facility for dental checkups.
