If you’ve ever had a toothache, then you know the pain can be excruciating. What can cause a toothache? According to Hutchinson dentist Dr. Grant Ringler there are several possibilities. For example, if you have a sinus infection, then the discomfort in your sinuses can make the teeth along your upper arch hurt. Some people experience pain in their teeth and gums because of periodontal disease, especially during the advanced stages of the disease. The most common cause, however, is linked to the nerve of the tooth. When you have a toothache, Hutchinson, the most important thing you can do is call your dentist. Dr. Ringler and his staff will take a digital x-ray, examine your tooth and correctly diagnose your toothache in order to provide the appropriate treatment to relieve your pain.
