Don’t Ignore That Toothache! Fort Mill, SC

Just as with any symptom, a toothache is an indication that something is going on inside your mouth and needs to be addressed by your dentist. Ignoring a toothache will only make matters worse, so it is essential that you have your pain or discomfort attended to sooner rather than later.

A toothache is unlike a headache or a joint ache that goes away on its own. Many people make the mistake of assuming that a minor toothache will just “get better,” but what people need to understand is that a toothache does not work like that – a toothache is a direct indicator that something is wrong. When your tooth hurts, it is letting you know that there is an issue going on inside your mouth. In fact, you may only think that your tooth hurts because the pain could be caused by an infection in your gums or an abscess at the tooth’s root. Or, your pain could be caused by a popcorn kernel being stuck between your teeth that has begun to decay. There are many reasons why people complain of a toothache, and they all need to be evaluated by a dentist.

Some toothaches are extreme and will cause severe consequences if they are not treated as early on as possible. Any of the following symptoms of a toothache need to be addressed by your dentist:

  • Pain in a tooth, or teeth, when biting down
  • A cracked tooth
  • Extreme tooth sensitivity
  • An abscess
  • Swollen gums, especially surrounding just one tooth
  • Pus around a tooth or oozing from the gum tissues
  • Tooth pain that wakes you up at night and/or disrupts your day
  • Tooth pain associated with a loose permanent tooth

At Gold Hill Dentistry, we care about all issues regarding your oral health. We understand that a toothache is a signal warning you that something is wrong and needs to be taken care of immediately. Please do not ignore your toothache – your pain and the consequences of your pain will only become more severe the longer it lasts. Call Gold Hill Dentistry today!

The staff at Gold Hill Dentistry is wonderful. They are polite, professional and helpful I have a history of working as both a dental assistant and hygienist in another state. I’m extremely particular when it comes to my dental care. My daughter recommended Gold Hill. I am very pleased with my dental care. I highly recommend the practice.

I highly recommend this dental practice. The staff are gracious, helpful, courteous and accommodating. Dr. Sagunarthy is a wonderful dentist. This is from someone who has always suffered with dental and gum issues. He is current on dental information, kind, gentle and professional! I am so happy to have found this practice!

Richard DeCristo

Dr. Sagunarthy is one of if not the best dentist I ever went to. He recently replaced a crown that was botched by another dentist and the procedure was done perfectly and painlessly. I first went to Gold Hill Dentistry for a second opinion on four crowns and maybe a root canal I needed asap from another dentist in Fort Mill. As it turned out I needed the crown replacement and only one other at a later date. That’s about $6000.00 I saved leaving this OTHER FORT MILL DENTIST. In addition to this wonderful dentist, the total staff is outstanding.

Midge Zimmerman

I have dental anxiety. I dreaded locating a dentist after recently moving to the area. I had gone to another dentist in the area but quickly changed to Gold Hill Denistry. Dr. Sagarnathy and staff are always kind, gentle and concerned with my well being. They also do a really good dental work. Other than routine work, I have had an implant, and chipped tooth repaired, all are doing well.
