Just like other parts of our body our mouth too has its own defense system and signals danger when there is a problem. Tooth pain is one of the indications of trouble in the mouth. There can be several reasons why tooth pain can occur. Whatever the reason tooth pain can truly make the day miserable for a person. Our dental practice based in Key West, FL treats tooth pain on priority. We perform all necessary tests and find out the root cause for pain to cure it.
Tooth pain can occur in different ways. Pain can be severe or sharp or throbbing depending on the cause of pain. Irrespective of how tooth pain occurs, patients should visit the dentist when the pain lasts for more than 1 or 2 days. Following are some of the causes of tooth pain.
The treatment for tooth pain depends on the cause of the pain. Our dentists perform the thorough examination and speak to patients about the pain to find out the cause of the pain. Dentists discuss the condition of the teeth with patients and take immediate steps to relieve them from pain. The treatment starts off based on the cause of pain. The idea of the treatment is to prevent dental infection and improve oral health. Antibiotics may be prescribed for quick healing of tooth pain.
At Key West Dental Associates we advise patients on how to take good care of teeth. Tooth pain can be avoided if good oral hygiene is maintained. Brushing teeth twice a day, flossing and visiting our dentist twice annually makes a big difference in the oral health of patients. When teeth are healthy so is the smile of people.
