Urgent Care

Emergency treatment of pain

In case of all injuries in the oral cavity, it is recommended that the patient immediately consults a dentist to see if treatment is necessary.  Your dentist will examine the place of the trauma and put an end to the pain and stop the condition from getting worse.

A toothache is a pain in or around a tooth that may be caused by:

  • Tooth decay
  • Abscessed tooth
  • Tooth fracture
  • A damaged filling
  • Repetitive motions, such as chewing gum or grinding teeth
  • Infected gums

Treatment for a toothache depends on the cause.  If a cavity is causing the toothache, your dentist will fill the cavity or possibly extract the tooth, if necessary.  A root canal might be needed if the cause of the toothache is determined to be an infection of the tooth's nerve.  Bacteria that have worked their way into the inner aspects of the tooth cause such an infection. An antibiotic may be prescribed if there is fever or swelling of the jaw.  Phototherapy with a cold laser may be used to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with the toothache.
