When you suffer from a toothache, it’s important to recognize that the problem isn’t existing in isolation. Instead, an uncomfortable tooth is potentially affecting many aspects of your life. For instance, the tooth is part of the larger framework that is your entire smile, it makes it less comfortable for you to eat, and you may even become distracted from daily tasks. Rather than let this issue take over your life, figure out what the pain is trying to tell you. From there, you can quickly address the problem and return to life as usual.

#1: You’re Seriously Congested

Your toothache may be letting you know that you’ve got some serious pressure emanating from your sinuses! As a result, the force pressing against your teeth makes one or more of them feel uncomfortable. While your teeth may be perfectly healthy, pressure and resulting pain may also let you know that something’s off with said tooth (like a cavity). Schedule a visit to make sure all is well (and treat that congestion).

#2: You Need Dental Care…Immediately

Your toothache might be telling you that you need our help! Unfortunately, when pain arrives it is often a sign of an underlying problem like a cavity. Or an infection. Or something else. What we are saying is that you should not ignore the discomfort. Instead, contact us for a visit. We can then treat the problem and send you on your merry way.

#3: It’s Time To Get Serious About Dental Care

If you end up with a toothache and it requires restorative treatment, this is a sign that it’s time to step up your dental care game! Cavities and other issue develop as the result of lax habits, so make sure you’re brushing, flossing, and scheduling preventive visits like a pro!
