Oral pain caused by a toothache is the symptom of an underlying dental and/or medical problem. It’s important to be evaluated so an experienced dentist can determine what that problem is, so you can receive treatment. Getting to the root cause as soon as possible is very important and it is something only a professional dentist can do. Some potential causes of oral pain are minor and might not require as much as other more serious issues. Some examples of minor oral pain issues are: a small cavity, minor tooth decay, or gingivitis. These can be treated fairly easily. However, if they are not promptly treated, they can lead to more serious dental health problems. Some serious problems that can cause toothaches include but aren’t limited to: gum disease, advanced periodontal disease, which can cause tooth loss and an abscess, which, if not treated promptly enough, can spread quickly and lead to a life-threatening condition called sepsis. Since small problems could very quickly turn into serious ones, you should contact the office as soon as your symptoms begin.
