If you have any dental pain then it is not a good idea to ignore it even if it goes away. It is always best to visit your dentist for a thorough check up as they will be able to determine the exact cause of the pain.
What causes tooth pain?
Pain in your mouth can be due to many things. Some of the more common causes are decay in a tooth, gum disease causing pain in your gums and thin enamel giving you sensitive teeth. With all of the causes of dental pain the sooner that you visit your dentist the easier it will be for them to solver your problem. If you ignore the pain then many times the problem can get worse and sometimes lead to infections and abscesses. If you are feeling anxious about receiving dental treatment then you can relax when you visit us as we also provide dental sedation for Glasgow patients at Complete Dental Care.
How do we treat dental pain?
This all depends on the cause of the pain. For decay in a tooth you will generally need a filling. If you have problems with your gums then a visit with our hygienist for a gum cleaning session should sort this out. Whatever the cause of your pain you can rest assured that we will be very patient and do our very best to help you.
