Toothache (also termed dental pain), is pain in the teeth and/or their supporting structures, caused by dental diseases or pain referred to the teeth by non-dental diseases.
Common causes include pulpitis (inflammation of the pulp, usually a response to dental caries ie tooth decay), dental trauma or other factors such as dental abscesses, "dry sockets" after a tooth extraction and others.
The treatment of toothache depends on the exact cause, and may involve a filling, root canal treatment, extraction, etc.
Toothache when severe is considered a dental emergency since there may be a significant impact on sleep, eating and daily activities. It is one of most common reasons for emergency dental treatment. So call Balmoral Dental Centre for your emergency appointment.
