Toothaches are a very common dental problem, and they are frequently caused by cavities and cracked teeth. When you visit Oak Park Family Dental with a toothache, our experienced dentist will carefully examine your mouth to determine the source of your discomfort and develop a treatment plan to restore a healthy, pain-free smile to your face. To make your appointment with Dr. Mark Jensen and to learn more about toothaches in Lenexa, Kansas, contact our office at 913-492-9660.
To have a toothache means that you are experiencing pain from your tooth, from the area surrounding a tooth or from the jawline near a tooth. There are many reasons why you may have a toothache, such as:
- Tooth decay
- Cracked teeth
- Gum disease
- Exposed tooth roots
- Jaw joint problems
Toothaches have also been known to be a result of other medical conditions, including sinus infections, heart attacks and ear infections.
During your appointment, our dentist and team will examine your mouth both visually and with a digital X-ray. This will help us determine what is causing your pain and which type of treatment will be most appropriate. There are a variety of treatments that may be recommended, ranging from improving your oral hygiene routine at home to restorative and endodontic treatments.
We strongly encourage you to maintain a regular schedule of dental cleanings and exams. Receiving routine preventive care helps you avoid toothaches and other dental problems and prevents the need for more extensive restorative treatments in the future.
