Do You Have a Toothache in Naperville, IL?

If you have a toothache, you should consider visiting us sooner rather than later as we will be able to find the source and give you a plan of action. A toothache means you may need emergency dentist services, but this isn’t something to worry about. We will handle your dental emergency with care and efficiency, making sure you are back to your normal routine in no time.

Causes of a Toothache

If you or one of your children is suffering from a toothache, you may wonder what the root cause is. There are a few reasons a person may experience this type of pain, some of which include:

  • Dental Abscess: A bacterial infection in the soft pulp of the tooth that builds in the form of pus inside the tooth or gums, which normally results in a root canal treatment.
  • Cracked Enamel: This occurs in the form of a vertical root fracture, craze lines, fractured cusp, or another crack that goes into the gumline or splits the tooth.
  • Gum Disease: Also known as periodontitis, this is an infection that damages soft tissue and bone supporting the teeth.
  • Stuck Food: This pain is caused due to food being lodged in between teeth where the individual cannot get to it with brushing or flossing.

How Are Toothaches Treated?

There are various ways a toothache may be treated. The most common treatment is a composite resin filling—a material that is used to fill the tooth to prevent any further decay. Another option is to extract the tooth completely if it is decayed beyond repair. If several teeth have to be extracted due to toothaches and irreparable damage, the dentist may suggest dental implants to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. Your family dentist at Naperville Commons Dental will advise on the best decision for you and your oral health.
