Do you have a toothache? When one shows up, we know that one of your top concerns is why it’s there in the first place. Though you can hop online to type in “tooth pain” or something similar to try to track down the cause of your discomfort, you’ll find that there are many, many reasons this could be happening. What on earth are you supposed to do with that information, you wonder? Well, the best thing you can do for your oral health is to immediately contact our Riverside, CA practice for a checkup! As for what really might be happening, we can get you started.

You May Have A Cavity

You might have already guessed this one. You could have a cavity! So, why can’t you know for sure that the toothache you’re experiencing is a cavity? Well, the nerves in your teeth are sophisticated enough to tell you that something is wrong. However, they don’t give you enough information for you to be able to distinguish between decay and other issues that an aggravate them. So, come in soon to find out what might be happening! Remember, we can treat decay with a beautiful filling.

It Could Be An Infection

As mentioned, it could be tooth decay. Or, your toothache might show up due to damage or the existence of infection. When infection takes place within your tooth, you may not be able to feel any change right off the bat. Over time, though, you may find that your tooth feels sensitive (particularly to pressure, hot, and cold), you may notice pain that throbs, and this will be your sign to schedule a visit with us. We provide root canals, beautiful crowns, and more to get your smile back to good health.

It Might Just Be Serious Irritation

You can irritate your tooth! Just imagine you accidentally bite down too hard on your fork and, though you don’t cause damage, you’ve bruised your tooth. Sometimes, gentle trauma doesn’t cause injury but it does cause pain. Keep this in mind but do visit us, so we may provide reassurance!
