Homeopathy Medicine for Toothache
Any pain we experience in our gums or around our teeth is known as a toothache, and it is typically an indication that there is a problem with our teeth or gums.
We should never ignore toothaches because toothaches brought on by tooth decay can worsen if left untreated. However, sometimes toothache pain is referred pain, meaning the pain is brought on by a problem elsewhere in our body.
Although toothaches typically aren’t fatal, they occasionally can be symptoms of serious illnesses that need to be treated right away.
Mild to severe toothaches can happen, and they can be ongoing or episodic.
SYMPTOMS OF TOOTACHE
- Some people only experience pain when they apply pressure to their teeth, such as when they bite down on something, and it may be sharp, throbbing, or constant.
- Swelling around the tooth.
- Fever or headache.
- toxic drainage coming from the infected tooth.
- a mouth odor that is unpleasant.
CAUSES OF TOOTACHE
Common causes of toothaches:
The most frequent cause of toothaches is tooth decay, which can lead to an infection in the pulp of the tooth or near it if left untreated, which is known as an abscess.
A tooth that is impacted—typically a wisdom tooth—is one that cannot erupt or grow in because it is lodged in the gum tissue or the bone, resulting in a toothache.
Common causes of referred pain toothaches:
A viral, bacterial, or fungal infection in the sinus cavity can cause sinusitis, a condition in which the sinuses become inflamed.
Our upper teeth can experience pain from sinusitis because the roots of those teeth are so close to our sinuses.
Less common causes of referred pain toothaches:
Toothaches can also be brought on by lung cancer, heart disease, and in some cases, a heart attack.
The vagus nerve, which travels from the brain through the jaw to various body organs including the heart and lungs, can cause toothache pain in people with heart and lung disease.
Rare causes of referred pain toothaches:
Our trigeminal and occipital nerves become irritated or inflamed as a result of the painful neurological conditions trigeminal neuralgia and occipital neuralgia.
When these nerves become inflamed, pain may appear to originate from the teeth because they supply our skull, face, and teeth.
While you wait for your dentist or doctor to schedule you for an appointment, home remedies may momentarily ease your pain.
To find tooth decay or other dental issues, your dentist will use X-rays and a physical examination of your teeth. If an infection is present, they may also prescribe painkillers and antibiotics.
If the cause of your toothache is tooth decay, your dentist will drill out the decay and fill the space with dental materials; if the cause is an impacted tooth, surgery may be necessary to remove it.
