It’s not unlikely that you will experience a toothache at least once in your life. If you have a firm grasp on how to react to this type of discomfort, you will fare far better in protecting your oral health. To get you on track regarding your smile and this specific sensation, we encourage you to consider a few things you should always remember.

#1: You Might Not Know What It Means

Yes, a toothache might occur because of decay. Or, it might show up because of an infection. Or, a wisdom tooth may be pushing on your tooth. Or … well, there are a lot of other problems that can lead to an uncomfortable tooth. Don’t make any assumptions! It could represent a problem or it could be passing pain. Let us figure it out.

#2: It’s Always A Good Reason To Schedule A Visit

If you have a toothache that lasts longer than a day or two, it’s always a good reason to schedule a dental care visit with us. Skip the urge to rationalize the discomfort or put it off. Simply call us, so we can check out the situation.

#3: It Shouldn’t Be Your Oral Health Compass

If you’ve ever said to yourself, “Well, I don’t have a toothache right now, so my oral health must be just fine,” then it’s time to rethink your smile. While the arrival of a toothache may certainly mean it’s time for a trip to see us and that something may be wrong, it isn’t always going to happen this way. Sometimes, something might be wrong (decay or infection, perhaps) but a toothache fails to occur. Schedule twice annual visits, so we can detect issues long before discomfort occurs.
