What Can I Do About My Tooth Pain?

Find out why ignoring dental pain could end up being an even more painful problem later on. 

Whenever you are dealing with a toothache, broken tooth or other dental problem our Kissimmee, FL, emergency dentists Dr. Adel Mansour and Dr. Ramy Labib should be the first doctors you turn to when serious issues arise. Of course, accidents and emergency situations don’t often wait for the opportune times. This is why having a regular dentist is so important during moments like these.

Causes of Dental Pain 

The most common cause of a toothache is a cavity, or hole in the tooth caused by decay. Other causes of a toothache may include,

  • An abscess
  • A fractured tooth
  • A broken filling or dental crown
  • The eruption of your wisdom teeth
  • Teeth grinding
  • Receding gums (receding gums can expose the roots of the teeth, causing tooth sensitivity and pain)

Handling Your Dental Pain 

You have a toothache. Now what? Okay, so the potential cause may shed some light as to whether or not you need to come in right away or whether you can just schedule an appointment with our dental team. If our Kissimmee, FL, family dentist has already diagnosed you with teeth grinding (bruxism) or a TMJ disorder and you’ve already experienced this pain before then you probably won’t need to rush into our office.

However, if you are unsure what is causing your pain, if the pain persists for more than a day or two, or if your pain is accompanied by a fever then it’s best to play it safe and visit us right away. While you may not be able to come into the office in the middle of the night you can try an over-the-counter pain reliever or oral analgesic to help dull the pain temporarily so you can sleep through the night. Just don’t forget to give us a call as soon as possible in the morning so we can set you up with a same-day appointment.

When dental problems arise for you or a family member it’s important that you have an emergency dentist that can give you the care you need. Turn to the dental team at Central Florida Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Kissimmee, FL, for immediate dental care. Call us at (407) 483-9990.
