What’s causing your tooth pain, you wonder? Could it be a cavity? Maybe you hit your tooth on something. Perhaps it’s some other concern. While you may assume that you can begin narrowing it down on your own and that there are likely just a few possibilities, the opposite is true: There are so many reasons your tooth may feel less than comfortable and the moment and the chance that you figure it out and self-diagnose correctly is quite slim! Instead of spending your time wondering and worrying, we encourage you to take a bit of time with our Virginia Beach, VA team right now (and during a visit very soon) to protect your oral health.
It Could Be A Hygiene Issue
It probably won’t shock you to learn that the reason for your tooth pain could be related to your dental hygiene. If it hasn’t been exceptional lately, then bacteria in your smile (or acids you’ve been consuming) might have begun affecting your teeth or gums. Common problems that can lead to discomfort include cavities, gum inflammation, and even infection. Schedule a visit soon to nip the problem in the bud!
It Might Be Balance Related
You might not have a very balanced bite. Whether it’s the natural alignment of your teeth (which results in teeth that tap, scrape, or knock into one another) or old dental work (which is no longer in good shape or fitting correctly), you might find yourself with tooth pain. Come in to discuss improvements to your alignment or to replace old work, so you may establish excellent balance and say bye-bye to discomfort.
You Might Have A Functional Concern
Did you know that beyond the health of your smile in relation to hygiene, there are other common issues centered around the way your smile is working on a day to day basis? This is your smile’s function. The issues, therefore, are called functional disorders. They include problems like TMJ disorder or bruxism. They include stress and strain and can most certainly result in tooth pain.
