Causes of Toothache
Tooth decay, when untreated, can attack the surfaces of the teeth. The bacteria in the teeth erode its surfaces revealing the sensitive portions of the tooth. Bacteria in the pulp can cause serious pain.
When you receive a strong blow to your face, the pain doesn’t always go away quickly. Sometimes, the pain stays, and can even be triggered by simply opening your mouth. Cracks in your teeth can run to the roots and develop into cavities or worse.
The bacteria in the mouth irritate the gums and cause them to recede. When the gums recede, the sensitive parts of the teeth are exposed, resulting in sensitivity towards extremely hot, cold, sticky, or sweet foods and beverages.
Abnormal alignment of the teeth results in uneven pressure inside the mouth. This may need the help of orthodontic correction like conventional braces or Invisalign®.
When a tooth does not develop fully through the gums, it irritates surrounding nerves, causing severe pain. Common cases of an impacted tooth involve wisdom teeth and other molars.
If you have toothache with no signs of tooth decay or periodontal disease, you may have bruxism. Bruxism is a common cause of toothache. If left untreated, persistent tooth grinding can damage crowns and fillings, and wear away the enamel, putting your teeth at risk for infection.
First Aid for Toothache
In case of toothache, here’s what you can do:
Make sure there are no food debris left in the mouth. To remove the food debris, brush your teeth and floss gently, especially in the affected area.
If swelling occurs, apply a cold compress.
Take over-the-counter painkillers, but do not give aspirin to patients younger than 18 years old. Never put aspirin directly on your aching tooth or the gums surrounding it.
