Tooth pain can be more than just a nuisance; it’s often a sign of underlying dental issues that require attention. At 19th Street Dental in Midtown Atlanta, we specialize in diagnosing and treating various causes of tooth pain. Understanding the reasons behind toothaches and jaw pain is crucial in addressing these problems effectively and preventing further complications.

Understanding the Causes of Tooth Pain

Tooth pain can arise from several different issues, ranging from minor to severe. Some common causes include:

  • Tooth Decay: Cavities can lead to sensitivity and pain, especially when eating hot or cold foods.
  • Gum Disease: Infections in the gums can cause pain that radiates to the tooth.
  • Tooth Abscess: This is a severe infection that occurs at the root of a tooth or in the gums and can lead to intense, throbbing pain.
  • Bruxism: Grinding or clenching your teeth, especially at night, can cause jaw pain and discomfort in the teeth.
  • Misaligned Teeth or Jaw: Improper alignment can put extra pressure on certain teeth, leading to pain.
  • Sinus Infections: Sometimes, what feels like tooth pain is actually referred pain from a sinus infection.

Why You Shouldn't Ignore Tooth Pain

Tooth pain is not something to take lightly. Ignoring it can lead to several serious consequences, including:

  • Progression of Decay or Infection: Without treatment, decay and infections can worsen, leading to more severe pain and potential tooth loss.
  • Increased Risk of Gum Disease: Painful teeth might be a sign of gum disease, which can have serious implications for your overall oral health.
  • Difficulty Eating and Speaking: Severe tooth pain can impact your ability to eat and speak comfortably, affecting your quality of life.
  • Long-term Dental Complications: Neglecting tooth pain can result in more complex dental issues in the future, often requiring more invasive and costly treatments.

Toothache Treatment Options in Midtown

At 19th Street Dental, we provide a range of treatments to address toothaches, depending on the cause and severity of the pain:

  • Fillings and Crowns: For cavities or minor fractures, fillings or crowns can restore the tooth and alleviate pain.
  • Root Canal Therapy: If the pain is due to a tooth abscess or severe infection, root canal therapy can save the tooth and eliminate the pain.
  • Gum Disease Treatment: We offer treatments for gum disease, which can also alleviate tooth pain caused by gum infections.
  • Mouthguards for Bruxism: Custom-made mouthguards can be provided to prevent teeth grinding and reduce associated pain.

Jaw Pain Treatment: Beyond Toothaches

Sometimes, the problem lies not just with the teeth but with the jaw. Conditions like TMJ disorder can cause significant jaw pain, headaches, and discomfort while chewing. We offer specialized treatments for jaw pain, including:

  • Custom Orthotics: These devices can help realign your jaw and reduce stress on the jaw joint.
  • Physical Therapy: Exercises and therapies can be prescribed to strengthen the jaw muscles and alleviate pain.
  • Lifestyle Changes: Advice on diet, stress management, and habits can help reduce the symptoms of jaw pain.

Love this place. Wonderful friendly staff, and exceptional dental work. The place is super modern with all the latest dental tech. Just had a crown put in - perfect fit, within an hour I didn’t notice or think about it again. Fit was perfect. I’ve been a patient for five years.
