Tooth Pain Troubles: Common Causes and What to Do About Them

Are you suffering from tooth pain? Ouch! We’ve all been there.

Tooth pain can range from a mild ache to excruciating pain. It’s important to identify the cause of your tooth pain so that you can receive the proper treatment. Here are some of the most common causes of tooth pain:

  • Tooth decay: When bacteria in your mouth breaks down the enamel on your teeth, it causes cavities. If left untreated, tooth decay can cause severe pain and eventually lead to tooth loss.
  • Gum disease: If you have gum disease, the bacteria in your mouth can cause inflammation and infection in your gums. This can lead to tooth pain and sensitivity.
  • Tooth abscess: An abscess is a pocket of pus that forms at the root of a tooth. It can cause severe pain, swelling, and redness.
  • Cracked or broken teeth: A crack or break in your tooth can cause sharp pain, especially when you chew or bite down.
  • Teeth grinding: Grinding your teeth can cause wear and tear on your teeth, which can lead to tooth sensitivity and pain.
  • Sensitive teeth: If your teeth are sensitive to hot, cold, or sweet foods, you may have sensitive teeth. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including tooth decay, gum recession, or enamel erosion.
  • Sinus infection: A sinus infection can cause pain in your upper teeth, as the sinuses are located close to the roots of your upper teeth.

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, it’s important to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Dental Arts Of Hastings-on-Hudson is here to help identify the cause of your pain and recommend the appropriate treatment.

Very gentle and thorough cleaning. I appreciate the great customer service and no sales pressure like so many dentists. They just care about you and your teeth.

First timer here. Excellent service from start to finish. Warm and attentive front desk. Always a gamble with a new dental hygienist, but fortunately no assault charges will pressed on Nuvia—in fact, the complete opposite, I’ll lavish praise. Glad to say I checked out of there—after a thorough exam by the doctor, post-cleaning—painlessly, and with tingling teeth. Will be returning.
