Dental Cavities

Treat Cavities before they become Toothaches

Cavities and tooth decay are one of the most common health problems around the world. They're especially common in children, but anyone who has teeth can get cavities, including infants and older adults.


Dental Toothache

When you are holding your jaw and experiencing pain, but still want to impress your friends, just say to them, "I have an odontalgia," – a toothache. The term "toothache," most times, means you are experiencing pain from your tooth, the area surrounding your tooth, or your jaw line area.

Common Causes of Dental Toothache

Your tooth pain results primarily from a dental condition as those listed here.

Sometimes, the toothache stems from the jaw joint.

Other Causes of Dental Toothache

Other medical conditions can cause tooth pain, for example, a heart attack, an ear infection, or a sinus infection. A common sign of a heart attack is pain radiating down the left arm or chest area. Sometimes, a toothache or jaw pain mimics a similar pain due to restricted blood flow to the heart muscle. In addition, ear and sinus infections sometimes reach into the tissues of the mouth and jaw and imitate the tooth pain associated with a dental toothache.

When you first experience tooth pain, you want to call Plano Parkway Dental, to schedule an appointment. Once in the office, Dr. Jesse Taylor or his hygienist will take a dental X-ray to determine the cause of the tooth pain. When they know the source of your tooth pain, they can recommend the corrective treatment.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, from a toothache, to trauma, to oral sports injury, contact Plano Parkway Dental immediately! They will get you out of pain quickly, and provide proper solutions for your individual condition.

How to Alleviate Your Dental Toothache

You regular dental care prevents and battles against cavities and tooth decay, but usually, if you have a toothache, it is a sign of a cavity. When you notice the symptoms, already the damage to your teeth is getting worse. Visit us at Plano Parkway Dental as soon as possible. We need to correct the cavity and eliminate your pain!

In addition to pain, contact us if you develop any of these signs or symptoms:

  • You have swollen gums that are red and tender.
  • You have gums that bleed.
  • You have gums that pull away from your teeth, making your teeth seem longer.
  • You have a bad taste that lingers in your mouth.
  • You have bad breath that has no explanation.
  • You have loose teeth.
  • You have teeth that are out of alignment.
  • You have teeth that are sensitive to sweet and hot or cold foods or beverages.
  • You have pain that causes you to avoid brushing or cleaning certain teeth or areas.
  • You have intense pain when you bite down or chew food or gum.

When Dr. Jesse Taylor can treat your cavity before you experience pain or develop any of the symptoms above, you may avoid the need for extensive treatment.

Remember, by scheduling a routine dental check up and dental cleaning, even when your mouth feels fine, and by practicing good dental care habits, you are taking good, preventive measures for optimum dental care.
