Say Goodbye To Tooth Pain
Anyone who has experienced the pain of a throbbing toothache knows how much it can distract you from your day and fill your time with unnecessary discomfort. Not only is pounding tooth pain distressing and difficult to bear, but it can also be a sign of other underlying conditions that need to be addressed quickly.
Getting To The Root Of The Problem
Pulpitis is inflammation of dental pulp (the nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue inside the tooth), and while its primary symptom is throbbing pain, its causes may vary. Some causes of pulpitis include:
- Tooth Decay
- Infection or Abscess
- Tooth Cracks
- Loose Fillings or Crowns
- Chips In Teeth
- Food Compaction Injuries Gingivitis
- Periodontal Disease.
- Grinding & Clenching Teeth
When bacteria are left unchecked, it can form holes in your teeth (also known as cavities) which lead to pain and infection. When the area between tooth and gum becomes infected, painful swelling can occur. Left untreated, it can cause permanent damage.
