A toothache can be caused by different types of dental problems. When you come in to see our dentist in Round Rock West with a toothache, our dentist will carefully assess the cause of your dental problem and provide you with appropriate treatment. Sometimes a cracked tooth can cause a toothache. The tooth can open and close while you speak, and eventually the pulp inside the tooth can become damaged and infected. This type of tooth problem can sometimes be difficult to find since the crack is not always clearly visible. However, you can be sure when you come to our dental practice that the exact cause of your tooth pain will be assessed. If you have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp, the tooth may become painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when pressure is placed upon it. If this is the case, you will need to have a root canal treatment in order to save the tooth. If our dentist determines that the tooth damage is too great to be saved by a root canal treatment, the tooth will need to be extracted and can then be replaced with a dental bridge or a dental implant. Wisdom teeth also cause toothaches. This is because wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the mouth to erupt, and often there is little space for this to occur. This means that wisdom teeth can develop different problems when trying to erupt including pushing other properly placed teeth out of position, or even becoming impacted. Dental cavities can also cause toothaches or tooth pain, and should be promptly treated to avoid needing a root canal treatment later on.
