Tooth Pain Cambridge Ontario – What Is Causing That Throbbing Tooth Pain In The Back Of Your Mouth?

Tooth pain Cambridge Ontario – If you have severe pain in the back of your mouth, jaw or headache, it might be impacted wisdom teeth.  Get a dentist to check it out right away!

Tooth Pain Can Be Caused By Many Things

  • Dental cavity – Food can become trapped between your teeth, providing a place for bacteria to grow. Bacterial growth can cause cavities.
  • Swollen gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Swelling around the jaw
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the neck
  • A small area of decay in a tooth
  • A loose filling or an exposed root surface resulting from gum recession
  • Possibly toothbrush abrasion
  • Receding gums
  • Thinning of your tooth enamel
  • Dental work may result in tooth sensitivity due to inflammation of the pulp tissues inside a tooth
  • Tooth decay, loose filling, cracked tooth
  • The pulp in your teeth could be inflamed and/or dying due to irreversible damage from a deep decay or physical trauma.
  • Pain felt in the sinus area of the face and in the upper back teeth could be because of sinus infection.
  • Clenching or grinding your teeth
  • The pulp tissue inside a tooth could be acutely infected, inflamed and dying. This is generally in response to decay coming very close to or entering the nerve.
  • An infection/abscess in your tooth that has spread from the pulp into the surrounding periodontal tissues and bone.
  • If it’s jaw pain, it may be caused by temporomandibular jaw disorders (TMJ) caused by a direct injury or trauma to the jaw, by tooth grinding (bruxism), or by arthritis or cancer affecting the jaw. If your wisdom teeth have not been removed, impacted molars could also be causing you jaw pain.
  • Poorly aligned wisdom teeth can even damage the jawbone or nerves.

 When To See A Dentist If You Have Tooth Pain

  • Sensitivity to hot or cold foods after dental treatment.
  • Sharp, stabbing pain when you bite down on your food
  • Sharp pains when eating or drinking hot or cold foods
  • Lingering pain after eating hot or cold foods and liquids.
  • Dull ache and pressure in the upper teeth and sinus area of one or both sides.
  • Acute and constant pain from an area, but difficult to say exactly which tooth is causing the problem.
  • Constant severe pain and pressure, swelling of the gum and sensitivity to touch.
  • Throbbing, incessant pain

If you get tooth pain once in a while, it may not be a problem.  However, if you start noticing a pattern, get it checked out right away.  Waiting until the pain becomes worse may not be a good idea in case there is some infection inside the teeth or below the surface of the gum line.

The causes of toothaches are not always clear so it is best to set up an appointment with a dentist take a closer look.  Your dentist will do a conclusive diagnosis and find the source of the pain.  If treatment is needed you can get it handled right away instead of letting the problem get worse.

In every case, it’s a smart idea to work closely with your dentist.  If you are experiencing anything that ‘feels’ wrong or painful, see your dentist right away.  This is the best way to avoid complications.
