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 Kknow? text

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

Innovative technology

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.

Mid-Columbia Dental 5 Gold Stars

“Dr. Spencer and Dr. Tim are awesome! They are professional, skilled, very kind and gentle, and both have a great sense of humor. They and the staff at Mid-Columbia Dental immediately made me feel comfortable. From the seat-heaters and massage chairs to the time they took to talk me through treatment options and recommendations, to actually working on my teeth... all of their care was exceptional. Oh, and their prices were lower than all the other offices I researched as well. I love these guys!” - Carolyn J., Member Since 2017
