Got a pain in your mouth? don’t assume is cavities right away. Cavities aren’t the only thing that can damage your teeth. At Lakeland Smile Experts we care about your teeth health and care, check these 3 common toothache causes and what you can do to fight them.
- Pressure Changes.
If you’re traveling and you change your atmospheric environment. The pressure might be different and might cause some tooth discomfort known as “Flyer’s Toothache”. If the pain reduces once you return to your normal environment, you’re probably fine. If the pain persists, you should make a dental appointment.
- Tooth Grinding.
Tooth grinding can happen while you’re sleeping and you’re not aware of your actions. Symptoms that may accompany grinding include headaches, unexplained facial pain, neck aches, and a sore jaw. If you believe that you are grinding your teeth overnight, you should discuss it with your dentist. Your dentist at Lakeland Smile Experts may recommend you a mouthguard and provide you tips to minimize the damage.
- Sinus Problems
if your upper rear teeth are giving you a hard time, you may have a sinus infection or inflammation. That area of your mouth is closest to your sinuses, making your teeth suffer the side effects. We recommend you to treat the sinus infection and if your toothache doesn’t go away, schedule an appointment with your dentist at Lakeland Smile Experts.
Whatever the cause, don’t forget to mention it to your dentist at Lakeland Smile Experts. Even if you’ve self-diagnosed, we may be able to provide you additional insight about your problem, cause, treatment and prevention of pain in the future. For emergencies, gives us a call at (863) 232-2271.
