If you are experiencing a toothache, we recommend seeking immediate professional attention to diagnose the issue and prevent complications. A toothache can be a sign of underlying issues that may worsen over time.
Antibiotics are often used to manage bacterial infections in the teeth or gums, but they are generally not a stand-alone cure for a toothache. Most toothaches require further dental treatment such as fillings, root canals, or extractions.
Root canal therapy is usually recommended as a last resort to save a severely damaged or infected tooth. Alternative treatments may be available depending on the specifics of your condition. Your dentist at Precision Dental will discuss all possible treatment options with you.
Hormonal changes during pregnancy can make you more susceptible to dental problems like gum disease, which could lead to toothache. However, any toothache should be evaluated by a dentist to determine its cause and appropriate treatment.
Over-the-counter pain medications may provide temporary relief from a toothache but they do not treat the underlying issue. Prolonged use of such medications without professional guidance can lead to other health issues.
In some instances, sinus infections can cause pain that mimics a toothache, typically in the upper rear teeth. A thorough diagnosis can help determine whether your symptoms are sinus-related or due to a dental issue.
Yes, at Precision Dental, we understand that toothaches can strike at any time and often require immediate attention. That’s why we offer emergency dental services for rapid relief.
