Toothache

Toothache describes pain in and around the teeth and jaws. Generally, the pain may be sharp and come and go (as a response to hot or cold temperatures, for example), or it may appear as a dull, ongoing ache.

If you’re suffering from toothache, call us now on 02031376356. We’ll give you the next available emergency dentist appointment to relieve your pain and restore your oral health.

The causes of toothache:

Toothache occurs when the pulp chamber - the center of the tooth made up of living tissue - becomes infected and inflamed, as a result of:

  • Cavities (holes in the teeth) caused by tooth decay
  • Gum disease (receding gums which expose the tooth root)
  • A cracked tooth which may be too small to notice
  • Loose or broken fillings which leave the sensitive nerves in the teeth exposed
  • A periapical abscess in which pus collects under the tooth

In some cases of toothache, the dental pulp may be healthy, but pain can still be caused by:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Ulcers on the gum
  • Sinus infection
  • Jaw injury
  • Periodontal abscess (pus collecting in the gum and bone)

Treating toothache:

If your toothache lasts more than two days, please book an appointment with Emergency Dentist in London. Your dentist will examine your mouth and possibly take X-rays to determine the cause of your toothache.

  • Infected dental pulp will be to be cleaned out with root canal treatment
  • Tooth decay will be removed and the healthy tooth sealed with a filling
  • Loose or broken fillings will be replaced

Preventing toothache:

Keep your teeth and gums healthy by brushing and flossing your teeth regularly. It’s also important to visit your dentist for checkups.
