Toothaches can be painful and if not seen to by a dentist in Adelaide, they can progress to severe damage which may require an emergency dentist appointment if the pain becomes worse. Toothaches are caused by bacteria penetrating the tooth through to the nerve as a result of dental decay. Initially, tooth decay will cause you no discomfort, however as the decay progresses, once the bacteria is able to reach the nerve within your tooth it causes a painful reaction. If the bacteria is left untreated, infection in the tooth may set in, causing pain, inflammation, pressure in the jaw and a constant throbbing feeling felt within the tooth. 

An untreated toothache causing you discomfort will require attention by one of our emergency dentists in Adelaide. They will be able to treat the cause of your toothache and ensure that any pain you are experiencing is relived. Treatment of a toothache by one of our emergency dentists in Adelaide will not only treat the cause of the toothache itself but also provide ongoing support until your mouth has healed after your emergency dental treatment.
