If you have painful teeth, it is recommended that you see a dental professional either a dentist or a hygienist immediately.
Dental pain can be a result of many causes. It may be that a simple filling needs replacing or it could mean that a nerve has been damaged in which case root canal treatment or an extraction may be required.
If you have swelling of the gums along with dental pain, you may have a dental infection requiring antibiotics, which one of our dentists can prescribe.
The build-up of plaque and tooth decay can be the main causes of a tooth ache. To prevent future dental pain, it is advised that you visit the hygienist regularly, as this will ensure optimal health of your gums and teeth.
