Toothache and Dental Pain at Nowra

Toothache and Dental Pain

Toothache and Dental Pain

At our Nowra clinic, toothache is one of the leading reasons for dental visits. Toothache and dental pain may be due to a number of reasons but the bottom line for their visit with our Nowra dentist is because of how it has impaired their lives. And they are seeking not just pain relief but mainly to return to normalcy.

Some toothaches can be extremely painful that many patients are unable to sleep at night. Some also find it hard to eat and it has caused quite a spur on their health. And others are unable to proceed with their school or work because of the agonising pain. So how can Nowra Dentists help solve toothaches?

Toothache and Dental Pain Treatments at Nowra Dentists

Toothaches caused by a foreign object lodged in-between the teeth can be easily treated by gentle removal. Meanwhile, if tooth decay or infection is present, then dental fillings or root canal treatment at Nowra may be recommended. If these will not suffice, tooth extraction will be the last resort.

For inflamed gums, your dentist will advise deep scale and clean to remove bacteria beneath the gums that may be causing the pain. And for teeth grinding, the best route to take is habit management for correction and to avoid recurrence of dental pain.


Toothache caused by the wisdom tooth may ultimately require wisdom tooth extraction but it is always best to consult with your dentist at Nowra for the most suitable treatment for you.
