A toothache may feel like a sharp or shooting pain, a throbbing pain, an intermittent pain that comes and goes, a dull ache, or a pain in the jaw or in the sinus cavity. Moreover, a toothache may hurt round-the-clock or may only feel noticeable during activities like eating, biting or chewing. There are several reasons that your tooth will hurt, most frequently brought on by tooth decay, gum disease or an infection like abscess tooth. Inflammation in the dental pulp, the innermost layer of your teeth results in notable pain, because the interior of the tooth is made up…

When a tooth falls out of the mouth, it is possible to try to replant and save the health of the tooth. A dislodged tooth, also known as an avulsed, extruded or luxated tooth, is generally caused by trauma to the mouth which has resulted in the tooth being pushed up into or out of its socket usually through some sort of force or trauma like a fall or accident.

Lost Filling or Crown As many as 90% of U.S. adults will get at least one cavity in their life. A filling is a composite material used to fill the space in a cavity where decay once resided. Crowns are a tooth-shaped restorative cover that is used to protect and strengthen the tops of damaged teeth. Depending on the age of the filling (or crown), the material it’s made from and extenuating circumstances like trauma to the mouth, fillings or crowns can fall out. In other instances, crowns and fillings may come loose due to underlying tooth decay which can erode portions…

Your mouth is a hotbed of bacteria. Unchecked that bacteria can easily go from good, or even benign to, seriously damaging. While we all know the golden rule of thou shalt brush and floss at least twice a day, we may be inclined to ignore a small amount of blood in the sink if we’re keeping up with our oral hygiene. But with the some three-fourths of the US population who are likely to experience periodontal (gum) disease in their adulthood, bleeding gums shouldn’t be ignored as they are signals of serious potential dental and health problems.

Are you one of the 4 million people in the U.S. who are using braces to correct crooked teeth, close gaps or realign an over- or under-bite? One Orthodontic.org study revealed as much as 80% of teenagers will seek orthodontic care; however, there has been a recent resurgence in adults choosing to do the same. But no matter your age, braces do have a tendency to cause moderate to severe discomfort.

Abscessed Tooth An abscessed tooth is an infection in the root of the tooth, often caused by untreated tooth decay. Infection caused by an abscess produces a small pus-filled sore on the gums, as well as tooth pain and a range of symptoms. An abscess is not treatable at home and should be diagnosed and treated by a dentist. If left without treatment, an abscess can turn into a much worse infection that can spread to other parts of the face and body, puts you at risk for tooth loss, and in rare cases the infection can be fatal.
