- Dental abscess: Infections can lead to the formation of abscesses, causing severe, localized pain.

FAQs about Tooth Pain
Is tooth pain always a sign of a cavity?
Tooth pain can be caused by various factors, not just cavities. It’s crucial to consult with us for an accurate diagnosis.
Can tooth pain go away on its own?
While temporary relief might occur, tooth pain often indicates an underlying issue that requires professional attention. Ignoring it may lead to complications.
How do I know if I need a root canal?
Persistent, severe tooth pain, especially when accompanied by swelling, can be an indicator. A thorough examination is necessary for a definitive diagnosis.
Can stress cause tooth pain?
Yes, stress can contribute to tooth pain. It may lead to teeth grinding (bruxism), which can cause tooth sensitivity and pain. If you suspect stress affects your oral health, discuss it with our team for personalized advice and solutions.
Is it normal to experience tooth sensitivity after a dental procedure?
Some sensitivity after dental work, such as fillings or root canals, is normal. However, if the sensitivity persists or worsens, contact our office for further evaluation. We can provide guidance on managing post-procedure discomfort.
How can I manage tooth pain at home before my dental appointment?
While awaiting your appointment, you can try over-the-counter pain relievers, avoid extremely hot or cold foods, and maintain good oral hygiene practices. However, these are temporary measures. It’s crucial to schedule a visit with us for a comprehensive evaluation and proper treatment.
