Why does my Tooth Ache?

There are many reasons why your tooth might be aching, and without a dentist diagnosis it is hard to tell what is causing the pain. If you are in a lot of pain, it is important to come in and see us right away so the dentist can diagnose the problem and help. Other reasons your tooth might be aching is:

You have eaten really cold or hot food. It is common while you are eating cold or hot food or right after you have eaten it, for your teeth to ache a little and be tender. If you expire a toothache while you are eating cold or hot food, this is a possible solution.

You have a decay or a cavity in one of your teeth. If a cavity is small, or a surface level cavity there might not be any pain, but once a cavity gets bigger it can cause a toothache. We encourage everyone to have their teeth checked regularly to catch cavities early on.

You might have a re-existing cavity. Once you have had a cavity drilled and filled, sometimes if not all of the decay was removed, the cavity can come back and start a toothache. If this is happening to you, please come in and see us right away, it is important to catch these problems quickly.

If your tooth has been aching and it isn’t one of the scenarios mentioned, it still could be an underlying problem that you would want to get checked out immediately. When we experience a toothache it is our teeth telling us that something is wrong and that we should get it checked immediately.
