Is there an ache in your mouth that is unbearable? If there is, this may be a toothache and if not properly treated could lead into something worse and more serious. A toothache usually refers to pain around the teeth or jaws. In many instances, toothaches are caused by tooth or jaw problems such as a cavity, cracked tooth, an exposed tooth root, gum disease and many more problems. Toothaches can also be caused by a problem that does not originate in the tooth or mouth. Pain around your teeth and jaws, can be symptoms of diseases of the heart, ears, and sinuses. By recognizing a toothache right away, you can receive treatment to further protect your body from any other complications.

Is Your Toothache a Sign of a More Serious Problem?

Sometimes a toothache can be more than a simple ache, it can be an indication of something more serious. For instance, some toothaches can signify the more serious health issue of a heart attack. The sensation of pain on the left side of the jaw can signal this as well. Soreness of the jaw and cheekbones or difficulty with chewing may also be the first sign of temporomandibular joint disorder, which is a serious maxillofacial condition.

Additionally, sinus infections may produce pain in the upper molar teeth, wrongly leading you to think that you are experience a dental problem. For these reasons, it is important to consult your Noblesville dentist if you have a chronic or extremely painful toothache.

Alleviate Your Pain At Home

If you have a toothache it is very important that you see a dentist at once for diagnosis and treatment because, if left untreated, your condition can worsen. However, if you are unable to schedule an emergency appointment, a self-care treatment can temporarily alleviate pain and inflammation from a toothache:

* Rinse with warm salt water.
* Gently floss teeth to dislodge any food particles trapped between teeth.
* Never put aspirin or any other painkiller against the gums near the aching tooth, as it may burn the gum tissue.
* If there has been some trauma to the tooth, a cold compress may be applied on the outside cheek to relieve pain or swelling. If your tooth has been knocked out, forced out of position, loosened or fractured, visit the dentist's office or a hospital emergency room immediately.

How to Prevent Toothaches

The most important aspect to preventing toothaches is by establishing a regular oral hygiene routine and sticking with it. Failure to brush and floss regularly after meals can significantly increase your risk of developing cavities because after you eat bacteria in your mouth feed on sugar and starch producing acid that can eat a hole in your tooth's enamel. If the cavity is not filled, it can cause considerable pain and potentially destroy the dentin, pulp and the tooth's nerve.

Follow these simple tips to help prevent toothaches:
* Brush at least twice a day, preferably after every meal and snack
* Floss once a day to prevent gum disease
* Visit your dentist twice a year for oral examinations and a professional cleaning

Talk to your dentist in Noblesville, IN for further diagnosis and treatment of your toothache. Remember, don't put up with your ache-avoiding treatment can cause a worsening of symptoms.
