Patients delighted with the way London SE1 dentists deal with their tooth ache problems

05 / 08 / 2011

Tooth ache is something to be taken seriously because it might be a sign of something serious taking place in your mouth. Taking a pain killer and going off to bed might be a short term solution but if your tooth ache won’t go away then you must go and see your dentist to get the problem sorted out. There can be many different potential causes of tooth ache ranging from the relatively benign to the very serious.

A rather light bout of tooth ache might be caused by the formation of cavities. This is where the enamel has been worn away by the acidic influence of plaque and as such the nerves inside the tooth are beginning to be exposed. This problem will only get worse if it is not dealt with. Your dentist will probably have to fill the cavities so that the nerves are no longer exposed and your enamel won’t continue to decay.

In a similar vein, if you are grinding your teeth when you sleep you might find that your teeth are aching somewhat during the day. This is also the result of enamel being worn down by the impact of the grinding and it might be expedient to get a mouth guard fitted that you can wear during sleep.

At the more serious end of the spectrum, persistent tooth ache after an accident to the face ought to be taken very seriously indeed because you might have infected material in the inside of the tooth. Your London SE1 dentist will need to ensure that this material is removed from the interior of the tooth so that the tooth can stay ‘alive’. Root canal treatment might be necessary to save the tooth.
