There are some things you know about a toothache: It doesn’t feel very good. It can be a bit alarming. Nobody wants one. While you may have this knowledge, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll snap into action the moment you end up with soreness, throbbing, sensitivity, or any other type of discomfort. So, today, let’s flip the perspective for a moment and make our way through a couple things your tooth pain is not. It may offer you some much needed motivation.
#1: No Big Deal
While it’s possible that there’s nothing wrong with your tooth but some serious irritation, a toothache is not something you should think of as “no big deal.” When you do this, you may give yourself the freedom to avoid setting up a dental checkup for an extended period of time. If there is a problem, such as infection or decay, you’ll be giving it time to become much worse. Treat the discomfort seriously enough to set up an appointment with us to be on the safe side.
#2: Something You Should Touch
Yes, we know. Your investigative side wants to poke and prod your tooth in an effort to figure out why you have a toothache. Part of you thinks that if you do enough detective work, you’ll get to the bottom of things and you won’t have to worry about your tooth, schedule a visit, or do anything else. Unfortunately, this decision will never be to your advantage. You may make things worse, the tooth will likely become more aggravated, and you may end up ignoring a serious problem if you choose to avoid a visit.
