Dental Pain Treatment

Dental Pain TreatmentDental pain is one of the most common reasons that people visit the dentist. Jaw pain, toothaches, gum tenderness and other types of pain in or around your mouth can interfere with your daily activities, make it hard to eat and keep you awake at night. We can help you manage your discomfort and get you back on the road to good dental health.

Toothache pain can be triggered by temperature changes and may involve constant throbbing. In most cases, a toothache is caused by extensive decay, an abscess, a damaged filling or a fractured tooth. Treatment for dental pain will usually include a root canal or dental extraction. In some cases, you may need to take antibiotics to control the infection. Pain medications may be prescribed to alleviate your discomfort.

Gum pain can be associated with a localized infection due to debris or gum disease, which is a more widespread infection. Treating the gum disease will relieve the pain. A special deep cleaning procedure can eliminate the bacteria that are infecting the gums or the debris that is irritating them, giving your gums an opportunity to heal.

Dental pain may also be caused by your habits. Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can cause excessive trauma on your teeth and jaw joints. You may experience sharp pains, increased sensitivity or a chronic ache. Our dentist may recommend a mouth guard or other treatments to protect the teeth and give the jaw time to heal. The treatment for dental trauma-related pain can vary based on the type of damage present.

Preventing dental pain requires close attention to healthy dental habits. Brush your teeth two times a day, and floss daily. Routine checkups are a great way to monitor your teeth and restorations. Timely treatments can reduce the risk of minor problems deteriorating into more severe dental health problems. When playing contact sports or engaging in other high-risk activities, use a mouth guard. You may also need to wear a guard as recommended if you grind your teeth.
