What exactly is it?
Toothaches can be caused by a number of things and it is best to have one of our experienced dentists perform a proper diagnosis and offer definitive treatment as soon as possible. We understand that a toothache can be extremely painful. Many people have had sleepless nights and difficulty eating because of this.
We are particularly gentle with any patient that is coming in to see us with a toothache. We know how fragile people become, how utterly tired and irritable toothaches make people feel. We can even offer our patients a long lasting anaesthetic (8 to 12 hours of numbness!) if they’ve been in excessive pain for a while. This will allow a patient to rest peacefully at home after the dental treatment – at no extra charge.
Toothaches can be caused from exposed root surfaces, cracked teeth, cracked fillings, tooth decay, or even colds and ‘flu. Of particular concern is an abscess (infection).
