Toothache - what can it result from?
For every person who has ever had this dubious pleasure of feeling a toothache in his life, it is clear that it is one of the worst ailments. The pain is penetrating to the bone marrow, dull, severe and can often last for many days. If the tooth hurts, we should never underestimate this discomfort, but go to the dentist as soon as possible. It will put an end to our torments, and at the same time we will quickly get rid of the causes of pain.
There are many factors that can cause toothache. Much concerns serious dental diseases and periodontal tissues. A strong toothache can be caused by:
- tooth decay,
- inflammation of the dental pulp,
- gum disease and periodontitis.
The degree of pain depends on the patient's individual threshold of pain and the cause of the aching tooth. The tooth hurts because undesirable processes occur in it.
It happens that toothache results, among others, from unconscious bruxism, that is teeth grinding, excessive jaw clenching, tooth damage or loss, as well as due to invasive dental treatment. Regardless of whether the pain is temporary or lasting for a long time, we should always consult a dentist. In addition, it is worth finding out what are the home methods for toothache.
Strong toothache - what can it be associated with?
If we feel a sharp, strong toothache incidentally, for example in the mouth with a cold or hot drink or sweet or sour food, this is a symptom of developing tooth decay.
Ailing pain of high intensity, pulsing and covering the area of even the entire cheek, up to the eye, is a symptom characteristic of dental pulp inflammation. This is a serious condition that may be accompanied by abscess. If you feel this kind of toothache, we must make an appointment to the dentist immediately and compulsorily.
If the pain is not strong and the patient describes it as discomfort, it may mean existing gum disease and periodontitis, which can not be effectively treated at home, but only in the dental office.
