What Is Causing My Tooth Pain?

Tooth pain occurs for various reasons. Did you recently chew on something hard? Are you continuously flossing because it feels like an object or piece of food is stuck underneath the tooth? These are common causes, but others include:

  • A cavity
  • Periodontitis
  • Dentin hypersensitivity
  • Cracked tooth syndrome
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder

Once our Putnam Periodontal and Surgical Services dentist performs an oral examination and asks you a few questions, they can further explain the signs and symptoms of these conditions.

When to See Your Dentist

Sometimes tooth pain can be the result of an underlying condition, which is why it's best to visit your dentist for a proper diagnosis. If the gums are infected and pose cosmetic concerns along with your teeth, our staff at Putnam Family Dental can discuss treatment options that will suit your specific needs. Once restored from treatment, you'll reap the benefits of healthy gums, fresher breath, and fewer dental cavities.
