If you struggle with a toothache, then you know how painful it can be. Here at Morristown & Summit Prosthodontics in Summit, New Jersey, our dental team takes your oral health care very seriously, which is why we want to help you with your toothache troubles. Understanding the common causes of a toothache will help you with the treatment you need to overcome it.

Did you know, there are many situations that can cause a toothache? Some of these include accidents from sports or other sources, cavities that go untreated for too long, gum disease targeting around a tooth, an exposed root of a tooth, a lump or abscess, a seed stuck between teeth, and chipped or damaged teeth that have cracked or fractured. When a toothache begins, that is your smile telling you to seek help and see your dentist, Dr. Madalina Iorgulescu, right away to be treated.

Toothaches can be extremely painful but often go ignored with the use of over-the-counter pain medications. Additionally, if you do not get professional help, you could lose a tooth or develop a serious oral health condition. Keeping up with your oral care is indispensable to keeping your smile healthy. This will also help to ward off cavities or gum disease that could be causing the painful problem.
