Toothache

We strive to make your dental experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible, addressing your toothache with expert care and ensuring your overall well-being.

What Is a Toothache?

A toothache is a sensation of pain or discomfort in or around a tooth. It is often caused by various dental issues, such as tooth decay, dental abscess, gum disease, tooth sensitivity, cracked or fractured teeth, or impacted wisdom teeth.

The pain associated with a toothache can range from mild and intermittent to severe and constant, and it may be accompanied by sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swelling, and tenderness in the affected area.

When to Seek Dental Care for Toothache

Knowing when to seek dental care for a toothache is essential to prevent further complications and find relief from the discomfort. Here are some key factors to consider:

Severity and Duration of Pain

If the toothache is severe and persistent, it may indicate an underlying dental issue that requires immediate attention. Pain that lasts for more than a day or worsens over time should not be ignored.

Presence of Swelling or Fever

Swelling around the affected tooth or in the surrounding gums can be a sign of infection. Additionally, if the toothache is accompanied by fever or other signs of systemic illness, it may indicate a more serious problem that needs prompt evaluation by a dentist.

Difficulty Eating or Sleeping

A toothache that interferes with your ability to eat or drink comfortably or disrupts your sleep is a clear indication that professional dental care is necessary. Ignoring such discomfort can lead to worsened pain and potential complications.

Impact on Daily Activities

If the toothache affects your daily activities, such as speaking, working, or concentrating, it is crucial to seek dental care promptly. Tooth pain can significantly diminish your quality of life and productivity, and timely treatment can help restore normal function.

Tips to Avoid Toothaches

Maintaining optimal oral health is vital for preventing dental problems like toothaches. Here are essential steps to care for your teeth and keep toothaches at bay:

  1. Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes using fluoride toothpaste. This practice effectively removes plaque, reducing the risk of tooth decay.
  2. Flossing daily helps remove food particles and plaque between teeth and along the gum line, preventing gum disease and tooth decay.
  3. Using an antibacterial mouthwash can kill harmful bacteria in the mouth, helping prevent cavities and gum disease.
  4. Reducing consumption of sugary foods and drinks is crucial as they contribute to tooth decay. Opt for healthier alternatives and practice moderation.
  5. Drinking water helps wash away food particles and bacteria, maintaining oral hygiene and overall hydration.
  6. Schedule routine dental check-ups and cleanings to detect and address dental issues early, preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

What our clients say

Google Review

Have been a client here for over 10 years and highly recommend this practice. Dr Lubinka has been my dentist for 12 years since I moved from the UK. Her professionalism, knowledge, attention to detail and her communication is outstanding. The administrative, support and dental nurse staff here are equally exceptional. Customer focused, positive, flexible and polite. Have never ever considered going anywhere else. Highly recommended.

Thank you to all the staff for being so caring and accommodating for my husband's first visit. Dr Lubinka has set him on a path toward dental health recovery. This practice has even inspired me to visit for a checkup and that’s somewhat miraculous!

Google Review

Excellent customer service, with friendly and experienced staff! This is so helpful when you have a child who has always been anxious going to the dentist. Dr Master is so professional and composed that I don't even need to go in with my child when she has an appointment. He makes sure that you are completely satisfied with the service you receive and that's at no additional cost to you!

What can you say? Who loves going to the dentist? My experience has been awesome. No pain, no fuss, friendly and professional. Do I want to go again? No. I want to take better care of my teeth. Yet, if I have to go, I definitely will be back here.

I cannot praise Mindarie Quinn’s dental staff highly enough. My son had an accident at school resulting in a chipped tooth, the desk staff were amazing, shifting around appointments to fit him in for emergency treatment. Dr Aron was brilliant. He was calm & gentle with a traumatised boy. Within the hour we were back home with a fixed up-front tooth. This is my usual dentist, and my experiences are always great, but the care we received today in an emergency was so professional and reassuring, I felt the need to leave a review of our experience. Thank you for the incredible treatment we received with you today.

Myself and my children have been seeing Lubinka for years. She is kind, patient, friendly and explains everything very well. My daughter had to have 4 teeth extracted and the procedure went very well because of her trust in Lubinka. The other staff are also lovely. We highly recommend this practice.
