A toothache can invade and disrupt every living moment of your life. Toothaches may be caused by a cavity (tooth decay), abscesses, gum disease, loose or broken fillings, exposed tooth roots, food particles wedged between the teeth or trapped below your gum line, sinus pressure, trauma or irritation resulting from clenching or grinding.
Knowing how to handle a dental emergency can sometimes mean the difference between a happy and unhappy holiday experience. Whether you’re leaving for a Christmas holiday, winter cruise, a cottage weekend, or just enjoying the great Ontario outdoors, it’s smart to be prepared for any type of dental emergency.
Let’s face it… there’s almost nothing more painful that a raging toothache and it can come on without notice and knock you right off your feet.
A toothache can occur for a variety of reasons, ranging from non-serious to possibly life threatening and most people can’t tell the difference on their own. That’s why you should book an appointment to see us as soon as possible.
