Dental pain can have a variety of root causes but when you suffer from it you probably won’t be able to think too deeply about what they are because you will be so preoccupied with the pain. It can put you off eating and drinking and even talking. Breathing in cold air can become difficult too and you might find that it is dominating everything you do. Don’t delay in making an appointment with your dentist so that it can be dealt with, allowing you to get on with your life.
If your enamel has been worn away and cavities are beginning to form then your teeth might become painful. The layer of enamel on your teeth helps to protect the sensitive interior from outside influence and you will need to have the cavities filled before the problem can get any worse.
Your teeth might become painful from a freak accident, perhaps while playing sports. The impact might have damaged the interior of your teeth and you may need to have root canal treatment to sort it out and ensure that you retain a healthy and functional tooth. Grinding your teeth in your sleep can also cause teeth to feel painful, again because of the wearing down of enamel.
Keeping up the habit of going to see your West London every six months is the best way to guard against bouts of dental pain. They are able to spot the early signs of things like cavities and nocturnal teeth grinding. Make sure that you are taking the best possible care of your teeth at home too though and brushing and flossing twice a day so that plaque has less chance of causing cavities.
