Staying on top of your oral care routine is important, but there will be a time you will probably experience the discomfort of a toothache. You might think it could be a cavity, but there are other possible causes of toothaches. Dr. Jeffrey Feffer, Dr. Anthony Miceli, Dr. Andrew Hong, and Dr. Maja Simic have provided insight on why you may be experiencing discomfort.
Do you every feel a sharp pain when drinking hot or cold foods? This could be a sign of sensitive teeth. It’s important to schedule a visit with us to determine why your teeth are sensitive. While waiting for a dental appointment you should practice using a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth that can help ease the sensitivity.
If your experiencing sharp and stabbing pain, the cause of your toothache could be a cavity or cracked tooth. If you experience throbbing, nonstop pain, you may have an abscessed tooth or an infection that requires immediate attention. Give our office a call if you experience these symptoms.
