When It Comes to Identifying Dental Pain, We Need to Diagnose It
Posted on 4/24/2020 by Classic Smiles
When It Comes to Identifying Dental Pain, We Need to Diagnose ItYou may be experiencing oral pain, and believe you know the reason. However, you can never be too sure. You may not think that the pain is any big deal when it happens to be more serious. Don't look online or rely on other people's opinions. You need to find out from us before you rush to a conclusion. We need to diagnose the reason for your dental pain, so we best know how to treat it.

Defining a Toothache


A toothache can be defined as any type of pain, ache, or soreness surrounding a tooth. Besides feeling a dull or sharp, aching pain, you may experience sensitivity to temperatures or sweets. This normally happens when biting down on foods or chewing. To arrive at a diagnosis, we will consider one of several causes for the pain. These causes will be based on your dental examination, medical history, and dental imaging.

Summarizing the Causes for Dental Pain or a Toothache


You can experience dental pain for one of several reasons. That is why we need to carefully examine your gums and teeth to arrive at a diagnosis. People suffer from dental pain because of mere sensitivity, periodontal disease, impaction, or an inflammation of the tooth pulp. When the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, it is because the tooth is severely decayed. Cavities, large and small, can expose nerves that will cause pain, as can gum recession. An abscess frequently causes dental discomfort, as do cracked teeth. Causes that are not dental include sinus congestion or infection.

As you can see, you cannot come to a definite conclusion when it comes to figuring out the cause of your dental pain. In some instances, you may be experiencing referred pain, or pain that is coming from an entirely different source. Therefore, you cannot make an assessment yourself. You should always schedule an appointment and visit our office. We want to make sure that you don't continue to suffer needlessly. Contact us today if you are experiencing any kind of tooth or dental pain. We are always here to help.
