It’s no fun when one or some of your teeth are sore. In addition to being physically uncomfortable, you might be worried that it might progress to something worse. But just as people experience occasional aches and pains throughout their bodies, tooth pain can also come and go. Some conditions could require a visit to the dentist, others not necessarily.
The office of Buena Park Smile Dental is experienced in treating patients of all ages. We’re an excellent one-stop solution for the oral healthcare needs of your whole family. Whether it’s time for your kids’ back-to-school checkup or you have a toothache, rest assured that we’ll provide the expert service you need and expect.
If you feel tooth pain, one of these situations may be to blame.
Clenching or grinding
Do you take your tension, worry or anger out on your teeth? It’s not unusual to use gritting your teeth as a coping mechanism when you’re awake. It can also happen while you’re snoozing at night if you have a sleep disorder, you’re missing some teeth or your bite is misaligned.
You overuse mouthwashes
Being too much of a fan of oral rinses can make your teeth sensitive. Swishing more than three times a day poses the possibility of rinses that include acids could harm your dentin (the middle level of your teeth).
Your upper back teeth and your nasal passages are very close to each other, so it’s only natural that those teeth will feel the effects of jammed-up sinuses.
You like bright
Products that bleach your teeth can irritate your teeth and gums. It can also happen with toothpastes that have whitening agents.
Oh, the nerve
An uncommon ailment called trigeminal neuralgia makes one of the nerves in your head throb. That pain then radiates to your teeth.
Harsh foods and beverages
If you enjoy coffee, soda and citrus fruits (lemons, oranges and grapefruits), you probably wouldn’t enjoy the possible ramifications of these foods and drinks. They are high in acid, which can wear away enamel and its protective properties.
Buena Park Smile Dental has a well-established reputation for providing excellent care and compassionate service. New patients are always welcome to our state-of-the-art facility, which is your resource for the best in modern dentistry. Please don’t hesitate to call us to schedule an appointment.
