How To Treat A Toothache With Home Remedies

Common toothache symptoms include throbbing pain around a certain tooth, sensitivity to hot or cold foods, and discomfort when chewing. Causes can vary from cavities and gum disease to cracked teeth and exposed tooth roots. These first-aid measures will help.

What Causes a Toothache?

• Cavities: - Cavities are holes in the teeth that have worked through the top of layer of enamel and the second protective layer of dentin to expose the nerves below.
• Gum Disease: -When bone loss in the mouth occurs, it creates a loose hold for the teeth and the tissues of the gums become inflamed. Over time, bacteria from food become lodged in the spaces created by the bone movements and irritate the underlying inflammation, causing a toothache.
• Roots: -The nerve roots that are encased in enamel can become exposed for a number of reasons ranging from gum disease to bone deterioration due to osteoporosis or genetic deficiencies. Exposed roots will cause a toothache no matter how they became exposed.
• Cracks: -Cracks in the teeth due to injury can cause toothaches. When the enamel is loosened, it can cause pressure on the underlying nerves every time it is bitten down upon.
• Impacted: -Teeth that grow in to full size but do not break the surface of the gum create toothaches. As the teeth press on the gums, they can create a pounding ache. The tissue becomes inflamed and swollen.

Almost everyone has suffered from a toothache, and don't know how to get rid of the annoying pain, especially while trying to get a good night sleep.

You will still need to make a dentist appointment the next day. Getting regular exams and dental cleaning are two of the best things you can do for your oral health, but learning about the latest trends in dental care can help give you that extra edge to keep your smile healthy and beautiful for a lifetime.
