What is a toothache?

A toothache usually refers to pain around the teeth or jaws and is primarily a result of a dental condition. In most instances, toothaches are caused by tooth problems, such as a dental cavity, a cracked tooth, an exposed tooth root, or gum disease.

Disorders of the jaw joint can also cause pain that can be referred to as a toothache. The severity of a toothache can range from mild to sharp and excruciating. The pain may be aggravated by chewing, cold, or heat. A thorough oral examination, including dental X-rays, can help determine whether the toothache is coming from a tooth or jaw problem, and the cause.

DID YOU KNOW? Tooth pain can be caused by a wide range of issues, including a cracked tooth, decay, infection of the tooth, infection of the bone, recession, improper filling or restoration, and many other reasons.

Traditional panoramic x-rays are fantastic, however, they have limitations because they show a 3-dimensional object on a flat, 2-dimensional x-ray.

Mid-Columbia Dental uses 3-D x-ray machines. Cone beam technology allows us to see your dental anatomy as it actually exists! We use 3-D x-rays when we are placing dental implants, identifying potential cracked teeth, diagnosing infection, and many other instances where 3-D images are helpful.
