What Causes a Toothache?

Most everyone will have a toothache or experience tooth sensitivity at some point in their life. Often, the culprit is a small area of decay or another simple issue. However, the biggest mistake you can make is to ignore the pain.

Your toothache may be the result of one or more of the following issues:


Broken Tooth

Tooth Infection

Loose Crown

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Defective Filling

Gum Disease

TMJ Disorder

Toothache Pain Relief Tips

While you contact your dentist and get ready for your appointment, these at-home remedies can provide temporary tooth pain relief:

  • Over-the-counter pain medication
  • Gently rinse your mouth with warm saltwater (teaspoon of salt in 8 ounces of water)
  • Use a cold compress for 20 minutes at a time
  • Place a warm, wet tea bag against the problem tooth
  • Try a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth, like Sensodyne

Just remember: Toothache home remedies should be used in conjunction with professional dental treatment, not as a primary fix.

Tooth pain will likely not resolve itself. In most cases, it will get worse.
If your mouth is in pain, make sure you get things checked out ASAP.

High-Tech Toothache Treatments at Timberhill Dental

No matter the cause of your toothache, Timberhill Dental has high-tech, minimally-invasive diagnostics and techniques to help relieve pain and improve your health.

Some amazing benefits of this technology for diagnosing and treating tooth pain include:

  • There’s no need to bite down on sharp plastic — this can be very comfortable!
  • The Sirona 3D cone beam produces sharp, high-resolution HD digital images that help provide the best diagnosis and treatment plan.

Early Cavity Detection

The DIAGNOdent® laser allows us to find even the smallest cavities that may be causing you discomfort. This technology can detect cavities not visible to the naked eye, as well as cavities in locations that are difficult to check using traditional methods.

We always recommend that you take a preventive approach to toothaches and dental issues. To identify a possible cavity, most dentists…

  • Visually inspect the tooth
  • Take radiographic x-rays
  • Probe the tooth with a dental instrument

There is a more reliable method for discovering small cavities.

When you work with a dentist who offers Diagnodent based early cavity detection, cavities can be detected before they become problems. Remember, the sooner we find and treat your decay, the healthier your teeth and mouth will be and the less chance you’ll experience a severe toothache!
