Tooth decay is often the cause behind toothaches. Dental caries may cause the surface of the tooth to decay, leaving tiny cavities in the tooth that allow bacteria and food particles to enter. Caries appears as small dark brown spots on the surface of the tooth. It is often accompanied by toothache. There are several ways to treat this condition, depending on how persistent the pain is. If you experience painful flare-ups when you bite, we treat the decay with laser cavity filling. If your tooth is sensitive to hot and cold food/drinks, we restore it with a dental filling or root canal treatment, depending on the decay severity. If the pain is permanent, laser assisted root canal treatment is used to treat the inflammation and eliminate toothache.
The second most common cause of toothache is pulpitis, the inflammation of the dental pulp. There are various types of pulitis, however, it usually develops because of tooth decay where bacteria in the dental pulp become infected and cause it to become inflamed. This can cause severe, sharp pain in the tooth, and it is recommended to seek treatment immediately as it can have serious complications. It can lead to tooth loss, or it can spread, leading to infection or an abscess. The most effective treatment for pulpitis is laser assisted root canal treatment, a painless procedure performed by our dentists at Naturadent. Laser reduces recovery time after treatment, making it much faster than traditional root canal therapy.
Toothache can also occur in teeth that previously received root canal treatment. In this case, the condition results from an inflammatory response to organisms around the tooth, making it sensitive and painful to bite. The tooth must be examined with the help of a panoramic X-ray.Then we attempt to repair the tooth with root canal treatment, supplemented by anti-inflammation medication. If the inflammation persists or the tooth is beyond repair, we recommend extracting the affected tooth.
Toothache can occur as a result of excessive tension. Many people grind their teeth as a response to stressful situations or lifestyle, and do not even realize it. This puts additional tension on the teeth, causing the tooth surface to erode which may result in misalignments and additional stress on the jaw. Some grind their teeth at night. A mouth guard is an ideal solution that lifts and protects the teeth. Mouth guards help relieve the tension and cushion the jaw muscles, eliminating the pain and allowing the bite to be restored. If you experience temporomandibular disorders, please contact us.
Parodontopathy is a periodontal disease which attacks the supporting tissue of the tooth. It affects a large proportion of adults, but many are not aware of it. Parodontopathy can cause toothache and gum sensitivity. Moreover, it can cause the gums to bleed regularly and lead to an inflammatory response throughout the body. Treating parodontopathy first requires reducing the inflammation, then determining the condition of the affected tooth. We deep clean the periodontal pockets with laser curettage, removing bacteria and decayed tissue from the affected area. After treatment, the toothache should go away quickly as the laser helps reduce inflammation and bleeding. Therefore, recovery is much quicker.
Broken or cracked teeth can cause toothache, as well. In this case, pain mainly occurs with biting and when exposed to heat or cold. Cracks can form on the tooth over time, causing it to break. It can be caused by an accident, tooth decay, poor dental filling or bite problems. There is a variety of treatment for cracked or broken teeth, depending on the cause and severity of the case. In most cases, it can be fixed by placing a crown on the broken tooth, but root canal treatment may be required if nerve damage occurs.
Impacted wisdom teeth happen when the molar becomes trapped, preventing it from erupting into the mouth. This is a fairly common condition which can cause extreme pain due to inflammation. In this case you should contact your dentist immediately, as there can be serious complications if the trapped tooth is not treated. In most cases, the impacted wisdom tooth is removed with pain-free extraction. This prevents complications and eliminates pain. If you suffer from toothache contact our dentists as soon as possible. Choose Naturadent Laser Dentistry, we will help you find the exact cause of your toothache and the most painless way to treat it.
Cavities occur as a result of tooth decay. Food residue may be stuck on the surface and grooves of the tooth, or in between the teeth. The resulting tooth decay can have various symptoms, depending on how much of the cavity is affected. The most common symptoms are:
- Tooth sensitivity after eating or drinking sweets
- Toothache after eating or drinking hot and/or cold food or drinks
- General tooth sensitivity
- Spots on the surface of the tooth
- Pain during chewing
In our clinic, treating sensitive teeth starts with an assessment, paired with a panoramic X-ray and a personalized treatment plan. If you have a cavity, we offer a range of treatment options, depending on the extent and location of the tooth decay, that best suits your needs.
Bad teeth can be the result of various underlying conditions. To identify the cause, first we must identify the disease that causes these conditions. Dental problems can include tooth decay, cracks in the teeth, tooth abrasion, tooth sensitivity, all of which can result in serious toothache. In addition, diseases of the gums can be an underlying cause of bad teeth.
Identifying the cause is not always easy, as there may be complex dental issues below the surface. Finding the actual cause is crucial in dental treatment, and the treatment plan must reflect the precise diagnosis. Our experienced dentists are at your service to identify the exact cause, as early as during your first appointment. This is a crucial step: long-term success requires the combination of treatment and prevention. After our dentist identified the underlying cause, be it decay, periodontal disease, tooth sensitivity, tooth deficiency or the combination thereof, the next step is treating the bad tooth.
One of the most important aspects of placing a filling is comfort, that is, ensuring that the restored tooth is in line with the height of the rest of the teeth. In some cases, the restored tooth is out of line which can result in a throbbing sensation in the restored tooth. Throbbing can also indicate that the tooth or its root is inflamed.
To treat a filled tooth that is throbbing, we must identify the underlying cause of tooth sensitivity. If the underlying cause is a difference in height, we fix or replace the filling. If the filled tooth is overstrained or inflamed, a root canal treatment may be necessary. Our laser assisted root canal treatment is not only painless, but it exploits the antiseptic properties of laser, making the treatment truly effective.
When you receive root canal treatment, the throbbing sensation may last up to 3-4 days after the treatment. You should not be alarmed, this is how long it takes for the body to respond and regenerate.
Inflamed teeth should be treated as soon as possible. There can be many painful complications, side effects and long-term consequences. It is also important to know that inflamed teeth that are decayed or filled with bacteria are not always accompanied by pain. Side effects of an inflamed tooth include sensitivity to pressure, biting, cold and hot sensations, as well as constant, sharp, and throbbing pain. The pain may be too severe to treat with painkillers, and it may disrupt your sleep and day-to-day life. If left untreated, the side effects can extend to the area surrounding the tooth. This can cause swelling or the formation of an abscess (a small pocket of pus). As a result, the patient may experience a bad taste in the mouth, as well as bad breath. The inflammation can spread to the tissues of the cheek, jaw, neck or other parts of the head. This can cause swelling in the face or the entire surrounding area. If the inflamed tooth is left untreated, it can lead to extreme swelling, blocking the airways, which can be life-threatening.
Our clinic is dedicated to saving the tooth, when possible, but some cases require immediate extraction. We only choose this option if a root canal treatment is inefficient in treating the inflammation.
For several days after treatment, you can feel minimal sensitivity. This is completely normal, the sensitivity should pass gradually over time.
If you experience strong, long-lasting pain that may radiate into the surrounding teeth, contact your doctor as soon as possible. In some cases, placing a filling is insufficient, and root canal treatment may be required to save the tooth. It is also possible that the dentist did not assess the size of the filling correctly, the grooves and shapes are not properly formed, resulting in a misaligned filling. In this case, chewing may be uncomfortable and painful, and the surface of the filling may injure the tongue or gums. If you experience such symptoms, consult your dentist as soon as possible. Improperly sized fillings can be damaging to the parodontium, and it may cause jaw joint problems.
At Naturadent, tooth fillings are performed with extreme precision using a digital scanner, microscope and laser dental devices, reducing the rate of unsuccessful treatments to a minimum. Moreover, the antiseptic properties of laser treatment minimize the chance of inflammation and cavities, making your fillings extremely durable as well as aesthetically pleasing.
Symptoms of tooth sensitivity include short-term, sudden, sharp, stabbing pain that occur when eating hot, cold, sweet or acidic food or drinks, or inhaling cold air. Tooth sensitivity can have many underlying causes. In some cases, poor oral hygiene can lead to sensitive tooth. The causes of tooth sensitivity include tooth enamel erosion due to tooth decay, tooth injury or bruxism. In this case, sensitivity is only a symptom, and the actual cause has to be treated.
In our laser dentistry, soft-laser technology is used to eliminate sensitivity quickly and painlessly. When applied to the surface of sensitive teeth, dental laser covers the exposed dentin channels responsible for the pain, bringing immediate relief.
In conclusion, tooth sensitivity must be approached with identifying the root cause first and treating the tooth accordingly. If you experience the symptoms described above, visit our dentists so that you too can smile healthily and painlessly!
A sign of fluorosis is white spots on the tooth as a result of excessive fluoride use. In some pases, only a pale, white spot appears of the tooth which the dentist notices. In extreme cases, there may be yellowish and brownish spots, superficial irregularities, or visible holes on the enamel. White spots or discoloration caused by fluorosis are permanent aesthetic defects. These spots develop in childhood and do not disappear with time. Therefore, it is extremely important to seek help from a pediatric dentist and dental hygienist in time.
There are several treatments available to eliminate these spots, which can be:
If bleeding gums last for several days or even weeks with daily brushing, it is worth making an appointment for a dental consultation where the dentist can assess the severity of the problem. If bleeding is accompanied by other unpleasant symptoms such as soft, discolored gums, pain, unpleasant breath, gum sensitivity or retracted gums, it is recommended that you contact your dentist as soon as possible. These may be symptoms of advanced, severe gingivitis or periodontal disease, which can only be treated with the help of a dentist.
You can do a lot for the health of your teeth and gums by following a proper brushing routine and choosing the tools that best suit your needs. Make sure to choose a manual or electric toothbrush of proper hardness. It might be worth asking your expert dental hygienist to help you choose. No matter how thorough your at-home dental routine is, we recommend professional tartar removal and dental hygiene treatment to our patients every six months.
If you regularly experience bleeding gums while brushing your teeth, and/or your gums are dark red, soft, loose to the touch or sensitive to pressure, you probably have gingivitis. Early gingivitis can be cured with attention and proper treatment, and by eliminating inflammation, the development of serious periodontal disease can be prevented. It is not worth delaying treatment, as gingivitis can be cured painlessly in our clinic.
Among the first symptoms of gum atrophy is tooth sensitivity which occurs during eating, brushing the teeth, eating or drinking hot/cold things, or touching the affected area. In this case, the gum is retracted and the neck of the tooth becomes visible. Gingival atrophy can form periodontal pockets, cause bleeding gums, unpleasant breath, gaps between teeth or reddish colored gums, spontaneously or during brushing. Less often, the teeth may move from their original position. If you experience these symptoms, contact our clinic immediately.
To treat gum atrophy, Naturadent compiled a comprehensive dental package. The combined effort of a dentist and a dental hygienist is essential in treating gingival atrophy.
If you neglect bleeding gums, it can lead to gingivitis. If gingivitis is not treated in time, it can develop into periodontal disease over time. If the inflammation of gums is not treated for an extended period of time, it can spread to the periodontium, the supporting structure around the tooth. In this case, periodontal disease may develop. Inflammation damages the connective and bone tissue around the tooth, causing the tooth to loosen and develop painful inflamed pouches, ultimately leading to tooth loss.
At this stage, the tooth can only be treated in a dental clinic using professional treatment, one of the most gentle and painless methods of which is laser curettage. Periodontal disease can be treated effectively in our clinic, thanks to the advanced laser dental equipment. Curettage involves removing bacteria causing inflammation, tissues that have decayed due to inflammation and tissues that are actively inflamed with the help of laser. The laser has beneficial properties that help disinfect the treatment area, promoting quick recovery without unpleasant side effects.
Mouth sores affect more than 60% of the population. The sore is essentially a wound where decayed oral epithelial cells are surrounded by a yellowish-white inflamed area. The exact cause of mouth sores is unknown, but they are assumed to be related to problems in the immune system. Although an aphtha usually does not require treatment and it heals on its own in a few days, recovery can be significantly accelerated with the help of laser disinfection. Laser treatment clears away bacteria, preserving the intact tooth structure and protecting healthy tissue during disinfection or groove sealing procedures. The laser is often used before filling and groove sealing, as well as for disinfection in case of aphtha, herpes, ulcers and after various oral surgical procedures, dental implantation, or for preventive purposes to prevent tooth decay.
Mouth ulcers are punched out sores that have a yellowish-white color, and it is associated with a weakened immune system. Although this disease does not require treatment, the sore usually bursts on its own in a few days, healing is greatly accelerated if laser disinfection is used on the wound.
Herpes is caused by the herpes simplex virus, which has an incubation period of up to several years. Early symptoms include an itchy, tight sensation, followed by the formation of small blisters. The blisters burst after a couple of days, forming a scab which eventually flakes off. Topical treatments are available in pharmacies, but home remedies, such as cold compresses, can provide relief.
A sharp, broken tooth in the mouth can cause serious traumas and wounds on the tongue and mucous membranes. The tooth may scratch the tongue, causing pain and persistent irritation. This may lead to wounds, inflammation and swelling on the tongue. A chipped tooth is not only a danger to the oral cavity, but the chewing surface lost along the fracture also affects chewing, and therefore digestion. If the affected tooth is not treated, it can be very sensitive and painful, depending on the extent of the fracture and the affected area. Missing or broken teeth can move surrounding teeth. The teeth above and below the missing tooth may begin to move, trying to fill the gap and restore the bite. The broken tooth must be treated as soon as possible, and replaced appropriately to prevent any negative side effects on the rest of the teeth.
We recommend that you consult a dentist as soon as possible to ensure that recovery is quick, and further problems are prevented.
If we lose one of our teeth for some reason, it is recommended to replace it since a gap in the denture can lead to several problems. The surrounding teeth may begin to converge or collapse, altering the bite. And as unbelievable as that sounds, it can affect our movement, posture and body.
Our biological and aesthetic dentistry provides tooth replacement solutions that can permanently solve the problem of missing or damaged teeth. Our dental implantation techniques are painless. These techniques offer a permanent solution to missing teeth, be it one tooth or multiple teeth. All dental replacements are customized to the needs of the patients, using only the best, most reliable Swiss and Swedish implants. We provide the best quality from the most reliable source, with the utmost care and attention.
In case of extensive tooth loss affecting several teeth, we recommend the use of metal-free ceramic, or porcelain dental bridges. These bridges are made of natural, metal-free materials that are non-invasive, matching the color and shape of the original teeth. This makes it unique and fully tailored to your needs. The difference between the bridge and the original teeth is virtually invisible.
The disadvantage of metal-free porcelain bridges is that due to their shape, special attention must be paid to proper oral care and dental hygiene, as well as regular cleaning and dental check-ups every 3-6 months. Our dental hygienists are at your service.
We provide regular, six-month check-ups free of charge to our patients.
