Toothaches occur for numerous reasons and are an indication that something is not quite right.
Toothaches vary from intensity and frequency and it is important you do not ignore the warning sign.
The main reasons toothaches occur are:
- tooth decay and cavities
- cracked, chipped or missing teeth
- broken fillings
- damaged nerves or blood vessels
- Gingivitis or Periodontitis
- impacted wisdom teeth
If ignored, toothaches will increase in pain and frequency allowing the cause to advance and worsen.
Book an examination with your dentist so that the cause of your pain can be determined.
Depending on the findings your dentist will provide the best treatment plan for you. At GS Dental we provide a full assessment in a safe and caring environment.
