If you have a bad toothache it’s likely to cause you pain and discomfort which can significantly impact your concentration, sleep patterns and quality of life. Whilst relying on painkillers as a short term measure to reduce your discomfort may take the edge off your pain momentarily, seeing a dentist to treat the cause is the best way to relieve the pain once and for all and to ensure it does not get worse.

Common causes of toothaches and pain:

  • Trauma
  • Cracked tooth
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Decay
  • Periodontal (Gum) abscess
  • Bruxism (or tooth grinding)
  • Wisdom teeth problems

Timely treatment from a professionally trained dentist can:

  • Reduce treatment costs
  • Reduce the potential extent of treatment required
  • Reduce further damage to the affected area (e.g. to the nerve of the inflamed tooth)
  • Improve your chances of a permanent solution
  • Avoid serious health issues (e.g. hospitalisation due to significant problems such as severe facial swelling)

Adelaide Emergency Dental will treat your problem by pinpointing the underlying cause of the problem (e.g. cracked tooth) then using modern treatment and/or restoration techniques (e.g. tooth coloured filings, extractions, root canal treatment, etc) to solve the problem (and keep you smiling!)
