Toothache Treatment in Escondido, CA

Stop tooth pain now.

What to do if you have a toothache

Is your mouth hurting? Wondering what’s going on and how to make it stop? 

Toothaches are often caused by dental problems like cavities, cracked teeth, gum disease, or TMJ issues. Sometimes this pain will temporarily subside and may cause you to falsely believe that the worst is behind you. However, nine times out of ten the pain eventually returns — only much worse than before.

Don’t ignore a toothache. Contact us right away at (760) 741-5775 if you’re experiencing any of the following:

  • Sudden and sharp pain in your face and mouth
  • Dull throbbing pain in your mouth, face, jaw, or ears
  • Pain aggravated by chewing, cold, or heat.
  • Discomfort or bleeding when brushing or flossing

What causes a toothache?

You likely have some guesses about why your mouth is in pain, but there’s only one way to know for sure — talking to a dentist. A thorough dental examination, including 3D X-rays, will determine whether the toothache is coming from a single tooth, multiple teeth, gum issues, or a jaw problem. Once we’ve determined where the pain is originating, we can investigate the cause.

Tooth pain can be caused by a wide range of issues including: 

  • Cavity
  • Broken tooth
  • Tooth infection
  • Loose crown
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Improper filling
  • Gum disease
  • TMJ disorder
  • Bruxism

    • Gently rinse your mouth with warm saltwater

    Remember — toothache home remedies are meant to provide temporary relief. Always work with your dentist to coordinate the best long-term solution.

    Toothache treatments at TLC Escondido Dental

    Treating tooth pain is dependent on the issue you’re facing. Common treatments include a filling, dental crown, dental implant, and wisdom tooth extraction. Whatever treatment you need, our office offers a variety of high-tech equipment and diagnostic tools to ensure you receive the best care.

    For example, Cone Beam CT (CBCT) technology provides our dentists with a 3D picture of what’s going on in your mouth. CBCT scans use a very low radiation dose and are incredibly helpful in diagnosing the source of a toothache, including identifying cracked teeth, infections, wisdom teeth, TMJ issues, and more.

    My husband Gary recently had a new crown made at TLC Dental using a state of the art machine called Cerec. The entire procedure was completed in just a few hours start to finish and the crown is absolutely beautiful! One visit that was it! I can’t tell you how grateful he was to miss only a few hours of work to have this procedure done in 1 visit!  As my husband always tells me they are the best dentist we have ever had. So lucky to call them ours! Thank you TLC!
