Toothaches And Dental Emergencies

No one wants tooth pain. It can affect your general demeanor and attitude due to the distraction of the discomfort. Most pain originates from an exposed root, infection, or decay. However, there can be other issues that affect your mouth.

What Causes Toothaches And Dental Emergencies?

There are sinus cavities that are located above the upper jaw behind the cheek bones. These could be severely irritated or infected. An ear infection can also be masked as mouth pain. The temporomandiubular joint (TMJ) or the jawbone could have problems. There are rare cases when heart disease is the culprit.

If the pain extends beyond 15 to 20 seconds, especially reacting to cold or hot, there could be some serious issues at hand. Also any chronic pain or discomfort, including chewing or swallowing should not be ignored.

If you have an emergency, don’t hesitate to contact us at Manotick Main Dental. We are happy to help you find the source of your pain and help fix the problem.
