Does a Toothache Automatically Mean You Have a Cavity?

Posted on 8/24/2020 by Dr. Todd Rogers
A common misconception among patients is that toothache means you have a cavity or poor oral health when it is far from the truth. There are so many reasons why someone can be suffering with tooth pain, so here is a summary of a few. Why You May Have Toothache There could be many reasons why you are suffering with a toothache, but whatever the reason a dental check is always worth it. When a problem is caught early, it removes the risk of prolonged pain and the problem worsening. Someone who does a lot of endurance training may be unknowingly putting themselves at risk of tooth pain. It is thought to be the lack of saliva during exercise that causes the issue as saliva works at protecting your teeth against infection, so the key is to keep hydrated throughout. Tooth pain can be caused by an old filling falling out or breaking. If you eat something hard or there is decay around the filling, it may cause the filling to come out. When a filling falls out, food can easily be packed into the hole that is left and causing pressure as it's chewed. If you think a filling may have fallen out, it needs to be fixed. An abscess is a common cause of toothache. An abscess developed when food particles are stuck between teeth and gums, which creates inflammation. If an abscess goes ignored, the infection and grow and get worse. When wisdom teeth are erupting, they can cause a great deal of pain. If they are trying to erupt for a long time it may indicate a problem that needs to be checked. Wisdom teeth can also grow in awkward positions and cause overcrowding. The bottom line is, there could be many reasons as to why you are suffering with toothache. To prevent toothache, you should attend regular dental checkups and practice good oral hygiene at home. If you find yourself in any discomfort or pain, it needs to be treated before the problem gets worse. If you are experiencing toothache, give our office a call to book a dental appointment....
