The excruciating pain, the constant throbbing, and the nagging discomfort can make even the toughest of us cringe.
What many people don't realize is that toothaches often signal a significant issue with your oral health. Ignoring them or attempting to diagnose the problem yourself is not a smart move. Toothaches left untreated can lead to more severe problems, such as tooth loss, gum disease, and even systemic infections. That's why seeking immediate dental care is crucial to alleviate the pain and prevent long-term damage to your oral health.
Identifying the Root Cause of Your Tooth Pain
When you come to St. Albert Dental with a toothache, our team takes swift action to determine the underlying cause of your discomfort. This may involve a routine dental examination or advanced diagnostic tools like X-rays because many issues causing tooth pain are invisible to the naked eye.
Possible causes of toothaches include:
- Tooth Decay: This is often the primary culprit in dental problems. Tooth decay manifests as a cavity that has penetrated the tooth's deeper layers, eventually reaching the sensitive pulp.
- Infection: As a cavity deepens and invades the tooth, it can lead to pulp infection, causing significant discomfort and further dental complications if left unaddressed.
- Gum Recession: Sudden, intense tooth pain may be mistaken for a cavity but could indicate gum recession, where the gum tissue recedes, exposing more tooth structure and causing heightened sensitivity.
- Gum Disease: Advanced stages of gingivitis can lead to gum disease, spreading discomfort resembling a toothache, despite its slow progression.
- Impacted Wisdom Tooth: An impacted third molar, either partially erupted above the gum line or completely covered beneath it, can cause discomfort and harm to surrounding teeth.

Treatment Options for Tooth Pain Relief
St. Albert Dental offers a range of toothache relief treatments to address your specific needs. Here are some of the options available:
- Tooth-Colored Filling: An effective and durable solution for decayed or damaged teeth, tooth-colored fillings provide relief while maintaining a natural appearance.
- Porcelain Crown: For larger cavities, a porcelain crown covers the entire tooth, blending seamlessly with neighboring teeth while fortifying the tooth's structure.
- Root Canal Therapy: This treatment addresses infected teeth by cleaning the affected root canals, filling them, and capping the tooth with a crown for protection.
- Tooth Extraction: In rare cases where no other procedures can alleviate the pain, extraction may become necessary. If the source of pain is a wisdom tooth, extraction is a routine procedure, and tooth replacement may not be needed.
