HOW TO DEAL WITH TOOTHACHE
Toothache Treatment Cheltenham
Toothache — generally seen high on the pain spectrum. Sleepless nights are very common as one tries to lie down. A toothache is a pain that you feel in or around your tooth.
Most often, toothache pain is a sign that there’s something wrong with your tooth or gums. If left untreated, especially lower teeth, it may lead to infection-causing airway obstruction.
Dental pain can range from mild to severe, and it may be constant or recurring.
- throbbing pain or swelling in or around the affected tooth or gum
- sharp pain when touching your tooth or bite down
- tenderness in or around your tooth
- painful sensitivity in your tooth in response to hot or cold foods and drinks
- burning or shock-like pain
Toothache is generally treated in two ways. Deep cleaning and antibiotics can treat gum disease-related toothache.
However, toothache caused by cavities, cracks can be treated by a root canal or in extreme cases, by extracting the tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions
The pain is so bad, what can I do to help with the pain?
How will my dentist treat my toothache?
Treatment will depend the cause of your toothache.
If there’s a large cavity which has not reached the nerve of the tooth, then a dental filling will most likely take care of the problem.
But if your toothache is caused by a decay which has reached the nerve, then you will need a root canal.
