Sometimes, tooth pain can be very straightforward and you know just what’s happening. In other cases, you may find that your toothache causes you a lot of confusion. You might not be sure why you’re experiencing discomfort, what to make of the problem, or how to move forward. The short answer is: Come in for a checkup! As for that longer answer you’re hoping to receive…
Your Repaired Tooth Is Uncomfortable
It’s important to remember that you may experience a bit of sensitivity after you receive a restoration like a dental filling or a crown. Or, after receiving a root canal. This does not mean that you are experiencing a toothache because your tooth is still decayed or infected. It means that the nerves didn’t take too kindly to all of the commotion. Unless you’re feeling severe or persistent pain, remember that just a bit of sensitivity is normal and will go away.
You Can’t Tell Which Tooth Hurts
You have a toothache, this much you know. However, when you touch the tooth you think hurts, it doesn’t seem to respond. As a result, you think it might be the neighboring tooth but you cannot be certain. We understand that this might make you hesitate in coming to see us. However, we strongly encourage you to remember the following: This is very common! The nerves in your teeth are not extremely advanced, which means having trouble identifying the location of discomfort is a frequent issue. We can get to the source of your concern when you see us with an exam and digital imaging.
