• I had a wisdom tooth extracted at Rock House Dental Practice and am very happy with the service. Dr. Nandra was brilliant, it was all done in just a few minutes and I didn't feel a thing. Being in severe pain they managed to book me in for an appointment the day after I called in which was excellent. Highly... read more

          • I have been a patient here for a few years and the service is always first rate. All of the staff make you feel very welcome as going to the dentist is not everyone's cup of tea.

          • Excellent. Needed emergency treatment after breaking a tooth/filling. Could not get in at NHS emergency surgeries.
            Staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. A very good service, though it comes at a price.

          • Thank you so much for today. I was so nervous and you really calmed me down and I’m so grateful that you fixed my tooth temporarily. I have registered with your clinic and, while I can’t say I’m looking forward to visiting you again, I do at least trust that you can help.

          • Great practice with very professional staff. Dr Nandra and his team always put my family at ease about trips to the dentist and even my 2 under 5 now enjoy their visits which is a result given they wouldn’t even go into the room on their first trip! Could not recommend the practice enough.

Toothache - It Really Does Hurt

Don't ignore toothache...

Toothache is usually more than just a tooth ache, your tooth is telling you that there is a problem. A toothache is a dental emergency and can turn into a serious problem.

What causes a toothache?

There are many causes of dental pain:

  • Decay will eat its way through the tooth an into the nerve
  • Trauma may cause a nerve concussion
  • Gum disease can irritate the tooth
  • The recession of the gums can lead to the tooth becoming sensitive
  • A fractured tooth may expose the nerve
  • A dental abscess may have developed which may eventually lead to a facial swelling.

Tooth decay or gum disease cause damage to the tooth and allow bugs to enter into the nerve structure. These bugs and bacteria cause inflammation within the nerve structure. The nerve is a little brain within each tooth and this grey mater expands when it becomes inflamed. This is similar to when you get a headache, however, when the brain expands, the skull bones are also able to shift and allow expansion. As the tooth is a closed unit, i.e. it does not expand, the expansion from inflammation is acutely painful. Any of you that have experienced tooth pain will be able to vouch for that, I'm sure.

Untreated, a toothache will lead to an infected tooth. This will become an abscess and you will need root canal treatment. Therefore, it is always wise to treat a toothache whilst it is reversible.

How to get rid of a toothache?

Early diagnosis is the key. Often the early stages of tooth ache are reversible and something as simple as a filling can fix it. If left to get infected, more complex treatments will need to take place.

Home remedies do not work and consequently may actually make the problem worse. Painkillers are useful in masking the problem until you can see a dentist.

    Excellent first visit to the Rock Dental Practice. All the staff are friendly and professional. Particularly liked the 'real time' discussion about the Xray results - shown on a screen in the surgery a few minutes after they were taken. Can't get much better than that for patient care. 2/01/2019
