Toothache: Understand your Pain and Find Relief


Did you wake up with a mysterious pain in your mouth? Almost everyone experiences tooth pain at some point in life. If you have a toothache, don’t delay in getting treatment. Dental clinics in Atlanta offer affordable care that can relieve your pain and determine the best course of treatment to preserve your tooth. The facts listed below can help you understand more about possible causes and treatments for your toothache.

What May be Causing that Toothache

Tooth pain occurs when the soft center of a tooth becomes inflamed. Failed cavity prevention leading to subsequent tooth decay is not the only scenario that can cause a toothache. Inflammation may also be due to the following:

  • Gum disease
  • Damaged dental fillings
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Tooth-grinding or jaw-clenching
  • Infection at the root of the tooth

Specific Toothache Symptoms

Pain is always the most prominent symptom of a toothache, but it may take various forms. Tooth pain and related symptoms may be described in the following ways:

  • Shooting pain
  • Sharp or throbbing pain
  • Pain that only occurs when pressure is applied to the tooth
  • Unpleasant taste
  • Sore, swollen gums
  • Fever, headache, or general malaise

Toothache Triggers: The Usual Suspects

The onset of a toothache can be triggered by various habits and foods. It may be necessary to consult a dental service provider to manage trigger activities. Potential triggers include the following:

  • Clenching teeth or putting pressure on the affected tooth
  • Biting into something hard
  • Cold or hot foods and beverages
  • Candy or sweet foods
