If our teeth are aching when we eat or when we stop, they may need treatment. Or there is another cause underneath the aching and when this cause is eliminated, the problem automatically disappears.
CAN TOOTH DECAY BE THE CAUSE OF ACHING TEETH?
Tooth decay caused by bacteria causes brown and white stains on our teeth. Over time, these stains progress and turn into small holes in the tooth. These holes progress further and reach the nerves of the teeth.
In routine x-ray control of the teeth, these small holes are detected and fillings are made. Even before the small holes form, they can be treated with groove protectors.
Tooth protectors can repair the initial decay of the teeth and the pain disappears.
DO CRACKED AND BROKEN TEETH LEAK?
If a tooth cracks or breaks, the nerve of your tooth can be exposed. Sometimes you cannot see the crack and do not understand where the pain, or rather the aching, is coming from. You suspect the opposite tooth or the side tooth. This is called reflected pain. And if there is a reflection or a discoloration or a coating, you think where the pain is coming from.
A DENTAL EXAMINATION WITH X-RAY CONTROL IS ESSENTIAL IN REFLECTED TOOTHACHE.
It may also be necessary to use a night plate to treat a cracked or broken tooth.
TOOTH SENSITIVITY CAUSES TOOTHACHE.
Tooth sensitivity, also called dentine hypersensitivity, is characterized by sensitivity of the teeth to cold, heat and even sweets. The main cause of tooth sensitivity, which is usually evident with cold consumption after consuming something hot, is the exposure of the dentin layer, which is not the enamel layer surrounding the tooth.
The enamel layer on top of the tooth is exposed with intensive consumption of acidic foods, and factors such as teeth grinding and reflux cause the dentin layer of the tooth to be visible.
In addition, the recession of the gums causes dentin sensitivity in the abrasion of the length of the teeth as a result of improper brushing. This is also a consequence of aging. Reflux, eating disorders or blumia can also cause dentin to become exposed.
Protecting the enamel of our teeth is the best treatment method. Although the enamel of the tooth is the hardest organ of the body, it can wear away. The use of night plaque reduces this wear and is recommended.
IS THE USE OF SPECIAL PASTE EFFECTIVE IN RELIEVING TOOTH SENSITIVITY?
The use of special paste has a restorative effect especially in the area where the enamel is thinning. It also has a protective effect in areas where there is no enamel. Sports or yoga should be a part of our lives. Wearing protectors while practicing these sports protects our teeth against wear and cracking.
We need to brush our teeth twice a day and floss every day. If you have teeth grinding, it is recommended to use botox and protectors.
Regular dental check-ups are necessary for oral health control and cleaning.
