If your oral hygiene habits aren't up to par, your teeth, soft tissues and bone structures that hold them in place might require the attention of a dentist who can guide your oral health on the right track. For patients who acquire a toothache, Dr. Ronald Hull can recommend restorative services depending on the problem and pain level. If your oral health is in good standing, he'll educate you on some preventive maintenance tips to keep them healthy. If you notice any pain residing in the teeth, gums or jaw, schedule a consultation in our Elkhorn, WI, dental office to discover the possible causes and discuss treatment.

The Possible Causes of Your Toothache

If there is dull, radiating pain around the base of your gum line, or deep into the structure layers, this might be due to one or more of the following:

  • Abscessed tooth
  • Periodontal disease
  • Wisdom tooth eruption
  • Exposed roots or nerves
  • Damages or fractures in the enamel

Toothache Prevention

You could avoid a toothache altogether with a little TLC from your toothbrush and extra assistance from your dentist. In between oral examinations and professional cleanings, it's necessary to brush gently at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to help prevent cavities. Aim to floss at least once daily to remove any food particles left behind. For added protection, use an American Dental Association (ADA) approved mouth rinse. Also, a highly-acidic and sugar-ridden diet is harmful to enamel. You can shield it by consuming fruits with high water content and drinking sugar-free beverages like water.

Toothache Remedies and Treatment

Symptoms of a toothache are prominent. You'll likely experience tenderness and sensitivity in surrounding gum tissues and bone structures. You may also be ultra-sensitive to hot and cold food and beverages. Our dentist will recommend treatment options depending on the severity of the problem. Minimally-invasive procedures take place in our Elkhorn, WI, office, and may include preventive as well as restorative services like scaling and root planing, root canal, fillings, or bonding.

It doesn't matter if the pain is inside or around the tooth. If one or multiple is causing severe pain and discomfort, consult with our dentist to determine the best solution for relief. Dr. Ronald Hull will examine the teeth and gums to look for signs of disease and decay. He'll also address any questions or concerns about what might be causing your dental pain.
