If you have ever experienced the pain of a toothache, you know just how uncomfortable it can be. Toothache and swelling can lead to headaches and build-up of bacteria in the gums. However, if you’re someone who constantly suffers from toothaches, that could be a sign that something is seriously wrong with your teeth. Even though toothaches do sometimes come and go, there is usually an underlying cause which can and should be treated.
Your toothache may simply be caused by sensitivity to hot or cold, or it may be a sign of a more serious problem like tooth decay, an abscessed or fractured tooth, a damaged filling, gum disease or teeth grinding. So, if you have a bad toothache for more than a couple of days, or your toothache is very severe, we strongly urge you to call our Berwick practice on 03 9796 1881.
In many cases, a persistent toothache will be caused by a cavity or tooth decay and can lead to emergency dental procedures. So, to help you prevent toothache in future, the Langmore Dental team will offer you advice on the best oral hygiene practices to put in place at home.
Preventative measures are always the best form of care for your teeth. We strongly recommend brushing every morning and night using fluoride toothpaste and flossing every day to scrape away plaque and bacteria from between your teeth. You should limit how often you consume sugary or starchy food and drink and take care to rinse your mouth with water after eating to wash away food and promote saliva flow.
