Toothaches are an issue that most people will face in their lifetime, and can be caused by a number of factors.  Regardless of the cause of a toothache, this pain usually signifies a serious dental health issue, and may also be a sign of heart attack, TMJ disorder, or even a sinus infection.  For these reasons, it is very important to consult a dentist at the earliest sign of a toothache.

There are a number of types of tooth or mouth pain commonly referred to as toothache, and each could signify a different problem.  Intense, throbbing pain is often a sign of infection, while painful eating may be caused by a fractured tooth.  Toothache caused by exposure to cold may indicate gum recession, while sensitivity to heat may be a sign of a cavity, decay, fractured tooth, or an abscess.  Pain towards the back of the jaw may signify an impacted wisdom tooth or TMJ disorder.

Many people who suffer from a toothache postpone visiting the dentist out of fear of a painful and invasive treatment.  While dental procedures such as root canal, dental fillings, crowns and bridges may be potential toothache cures, these treatments are much more quick and comfortable today than many patients remember them to be.   No matter the severity or the type of toothache, it is important to seek out immediate dental care and a thorough examination to ensure that the toothache is not a sign of a greater problem which could lead to tooth loss or be a sign of a serious health issue.

Fabulous Dentist. Dr. Sidhu has been working on my teeth for the past year, fixing, adding veneers and implants and now I can smile again. Great staff also.

I have horrible teeth and have been around the block and back with dentists, trying many offices around Los Angeles and San Diego. Dentists come a dime a dozen but I try to avoid doing the trial and error thing with my teeth!

Dr. Jessy was highly recommended by a friend of mine so I went to see him for a consultation. First impressions are everything for me - beginning with how my first phone call is handled, stepping into the office for the first time, the front office staff, etc. Everyone I encountered was professional and courteous. When I had my consult with Dr. Jessy he was personable and professional but most importantly, I could tell he was experienced and knowledgeable.

Over the past two weeks I had 11 teeth worked on and I was really surprised by how gentle the process was. I'm accustomed to experiencing significant pain at the dentist and this was not the case at all. I definitely have confidence in Dr. Jessy and his office and highly recommend them!
