Dental pain eradicated thanks to thorough examinations of South East London dentists

12 / 07 / 2011

Aching teeth can be a real handicap as the pain often feels so intense that you can focus on little else. In fact sometimes the pain seems to go beyond just your teeth and affects your whole head. Painkillers might work in the short term but it is best if you go and get yourself examined in a dental surgery so that the cause of the dental pain can be ascertained and then dealt with.

A small amount of dental pain perhaps when you are eating or drinking things that are especially hot or cold might be the result of slightly worn away enamel. This could be the start of cavities developing and so this should be reported to your dentist. It might just be a matter of the removal of some caries or just advice that you take better care of your teeth at home.

More severe dental pain probably has more complex causes. If the pain is chronic and on-going it is likely that the problem is coming from within your tooth where there is a mass of nerve endings. An abscess might be the result of an accident or if germs have entered the pulp chamber through a crack or a large cavity. Your dentist might need to carry out root canal surgery to deal with this and ensure that your tooth is free from infection.

Don’t be afraid to report these problems to your dentist. If it turns out to be nothing at all, then at least you made sure of it. South East London dentists are there to help and they are quite happy to see patients who have problems with dental pain and want to put an end to it and get on with their lives.
