If you have a toothache, then you know how painful it can become. Here at Northwest Center for Dentistry in Kalispell, Montana, our caring dental team takes your oral health seriously, which is why we want to help you with your toothache troubles. To help you, here is some information on common causes of toothaches so you can know how to treat it.

There are various things that can cause a toothache. Some of these things include injuries or accidents from sports and other sources, cavities that go untreated, gum disease targeting around a tooth, an exposed root of a tooth, a lump or abscess, a seed stuck between teeth, and chipped or damaged teeth that have cracked or fractured. When a toothache starts, that is your smile telling you to seek help and see your dentist, Dr. Cameron Clark, right away to be treated.

Toothaches can be painful but often go overlooked with the use of over-the-counter pain medications. Furthermore, if you do not get professional help, you could lose a tooth or develop a serious oral health condition. Keeping up with your oral care is essential to keeping your smile healthy. This will also help to ward off cavities or gum disease that could be causing the problem.
