Causes of a toothache
Toothaches can occur for many reasons. They include:
- Deep area of decay
- Infected dental pulp
Determining the cause
The first step in deciding the proper treatment for a toothache is to determine the cause of the problem. This requires an initial evaluation with Dr. John L. Aurelia. He may perform a series of x-rays to check the health of the tooth from the inside out.
He may be able to spot the problem with a quick physical evaluation.
The treatment of a toothache will be determined based on the cause. Patients with an infection may need root canal therapy, while other patients with a deep cavity may just need a thorough cleaning and the placement of a filling.
