Toothache or Sensitivity?
Many people have teeth that are sensitive to hot or cold, but if you have a reaction that persists after the hot or cold stimuli is removed, you should have it checked out. And if your tooth is sensitive to biting, it’s a sign that something more is going on.
What Causes Toothaches?
Toothaches can be caused by a number of things, and sometimes a simple procedure can resolve them. Some are caused by infections in the tooth or in the gums surrounding the tooth. Even something as simple as a small seed caught between the teeth can cause a pain. But when tooth decay has reached the pulp, where the nerves are, it will cause an infection that will usually call for a root canal.
What if I Need a Root Canal?
Root canal treatment used to be one of the most feared of dental treatments, but with recent technological advances, it no longer needs to be painful or traumatic. And even if you do need this treatment, it will save your tooth, and save you from a tooth extraction, which is a more serious option.
