A few weeks back I had to have my top right wisdom tooth pulled out. The pain was excruciating and gave me really bad headaches. I wish I knew then what I knew now in how to control the pain while getting a dentist’s appointment.
Although pain is our brain’s way of protecting us from further damage or infection to organs and other areas of the body, most of us suffering from acute pain would prefer to do without. Unfortunately, we will all at some point in our lives end up with severe toothache as a result of irregular activity inside the tooth’s pulp chamber. However, the severity of the pain we feel due to such dental disasters is down to the degree of stimulus involved and which type it is. Those of us that have a favourite aunt to discuss various matters of life over with may not be at all surprised that she is able to shed some light on some of the causes of disturbing dental pain. But without hurting the feelings of our concerned relative, it would be wise to do some online research into the various reasons for tooth pain that never seems to wane.
The Root of Aching Teeth
Apart from the more obvious signs of tooth decay or exposed root surface leading to mild or more severe pain, there are some insidious dental issues that cause intense toothache. A dental abscess, which may not be so easy to diagnose at first, often results in the inflammation of the tooth pulp and a sleepless night for people who have just been afflicted by this dental condition. The good news for sleep-deprived toothache sufferers is that an extremely reliable emergency dentist Brisbane service should not be hard to find with an online search. However, rather than wait until we get to the dentist for that much needed treatment, taking some strong painkillers as well as washing our mouth out with tepid salt water every hour would be a good idea. What some well-informed people do with agonising toothache is fill a freezer bag with ice and apply it to a throbbing tooth or alternatively, place the ice bag on the cheek.
As well as the issues mentioned above causing severe toothache, there are a number of other reasons for extreme toothache occurring including the following:
- An impacted wisdom tooth or other blocked denticle
- An apical abscess
- Severe dental cavities
- Sinus problems
- Trauma to teeth
- Gum disease

Lying awake in bed at 3:00 in the morning due to excruciating toothache is no joke. But even though there is help at hand in the form of flexible dentists with an emergency service, it is wise to know a few common remedies for severe toothache. Temporary relief to the sort of toothache that could turn a mild-mannered pussycat into a hot-tempered tiger is only a click away. Indeed, there are informative articles sufferers of extreme pain to one or a number of their teeth should look at for some pain relief solutions. Busy people who really do need to get a good night’s rest as often as possible may be able to find a remedy to provide them with some effective pain relief if ever they experience a serious dental issue. At the end of the day, losing sleep at night due to terrible toothache is something nobody should have to go through.
