Toothache and Treatment
Usually, toothache enters our lives at the point where it is unbearable.
Now let’s first explain the causes of toothache:
- The most common cause of toothache is tooth decay. When the teeth decay, the teeth begin to ache as the layer protecting the tooth becomes thinner over time.
- Having a fracture or crack in the tooth
- Problems in the gums
- Presence of tooth abrasions
- Today, tooth clenching, which is the disease of the age, is also the cause of toothache.
Treatment of Toothache
The most important factor in the treatment of toothache is the identification of the cause.
Toothache often occurs in the form of reflected pain. If the pain is in the form of reflected pain, the situation is complicated.
Reflected pain sometimes originates from the tooth. Sometimes it is caused by an organ other than the tooth, but it is mistaken for toothache. Insidious pain that hits the ear, pain that occurs when the lower wisdom teeth cannot come out and remain buried, ear pain, and even pain that hits the tonsils. Pain in the ear develops due to deformation of the joints as a result of teeth grinding. Pain that hits the temples, in cases where the upper wisdom tooth cannot fully erupt, even if it erupts, it cannot be cleaned completely, the pain hits the temples as a result of rapid decay and inflammation. The upper wisdom tooth erupts towards the cheek and cannot be cleaned completely. The chewing surface of the tooth is too indented and protruding and decays quite easily, but it is not possible to see the decay because it is behind. Pain in the temple and head causes meaningless pain. The person thinks it is a headache and tries to relieve it with painkillers. Pain in the eye occurs as a result of inflammation of the upper canine teeth. Our head and face area is quite complex. The organ that dominates the nervous system of this region the most is our teeth.
After determining the cause of the pain, the pain is eliminated by eliminating the factor.
After the pain is eliminated, we can create protective measures by preventing its recurrence.
