Suffering from a toothache? Here at the Flint, MI, office of Dr. Frank Gordon, we can provide fast relief from your aching tooth. Here is what might be causing your dental pain:

Impacted Wisdom Teeth - Wisdom teeth are the third molars at the back of the mouth that don't have enough room to develop normally or emerge. Impacted wisdom teeth can result in tooth pain, damage to other teeth, and other dental problems. The pain may extend to the ears and jaw.

Knocked-Out Teeth - A broken or knocked-out tooth causes tooth pain. Broken or knocked-out teeth can occur from an injury. If you have a broken or knocked-out tooth, you should call your dentist immediately. If your tooth is fully knocked out, rinse it off and put it back in place. If you're not able to get it back in place, put it in a cup of milk or even water and seek dental care.

Dental Cavities - You may experience tooth pain if you have a dental cavity. Dental cavities are damaged areas in teeth that develop into tiny holes. When a dental cavity is just beginning, you may not have any symptoms at all. As the decay gets larger, it may cause symptoms including a toothache, tooth sensitivity, and a mild-to-sharp pain when consuming something cold or hot.

Dentin Sensitivity - Dentin hypersensitivity is a painful condition that occurs when the inner layer of the tooth becomes exposed. This condition can develop as a result of gum recession. It causes a sharp pain that worsens with pressure on the exposed tooth or when drinking cold or hot drinks.
