Toothache can be an uncomfortable, often painful feeling. Difficulty eating, throbbing jaw pain, and temperature sensitivity are some of the symptoms of tooth pain.
If you are dealing with sudden sharp pains or consistent dull pains that’s been persisting for more than 24 hours, we recommend you schedule your visit to us.
Our experienced Noosa Dentist will examine what’s causing you pain. Oftentimes, it’s one of the following:
A leading cause of tooth pain. Your teeth become more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures as your enamel wears thin. Tooth decay is also responsible for cavities.
Bacteria cause infection on your tooth as it bypasses your barries through cracks, chips, or cavities. Regularly caring for your teeth every day will prevent infection from occurring.
An uneven bite may place strain on your jaw muscles, resulting in tooth and mouth pain. This can even lead to Temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMJ
Waking up with a sore jaw or headache might be due to unconsciously grinding your teeth while you sleep. When you visit us, we’ll be able to tell whether or not there is evidence of teeth grinding by examining your teeth and bite.
Infants and children experience tooth pain either due to the eruption of their primary teeth or the loss of primary teeth as they get older.
