You’re fortunate to have found a dedicated group of dentists open on Saturday because when tooth nerve pain strikes, it can shut you down. And if you have an active family, tooth nerve pain from an accident or sports injury can cause considerable worry. Your Saturday dentist can diagnose and treat your nerve pain, make suggestions for relieving the pain until you can get more complicated treatments, stave off serious complications and ensure your smile remains intact.

You can’t always tell the source of your dental pain, which is why it’s best to have a dentist open on Saturday. Put him on speed dial and call whenever you suddenly start experiencing severe pain in your mouth. Whether your teeth are giving way to tooth decay or you’ve cracked a tooth accidentally, you need to find out as soon as possible to prevent serious consequences, like even losing the tooth.

Your Sunday dentist knows that mouth pain can be debilitating. It can keep you from enjoying life and going about your everyday activities. Severe oral pain can be due to any number of causes too, such as:

  • A broken tooth from biting down on hard food
  • Food particles that got lodged under a crown
  • A nerve that became exposed through the loss of enamel and dentin
  • An infection or abscess
  • Gum disease

Prevent the Pain

Your dentists open on Saturday may provide you with a list of foods to avoid if your nerve pain seems to be triggered when you eat and drink. If the pain isn’t severely affecting your overall oral health at the moment, you can take common-sense steps. A gentle dentist guides you through the process of eventually getting your dental care up-to-date, but you need to play a role to be free of pain.

Ask your top Yonkers dentist which toothpaste can help reduce nerve pain if your teeth are sensitive. A slew of sensitive toothpaste brands are on the market today. Foods you can avoid to keep the pain at bay include:

  • Ice cream, ice and other frozen food
  • Sticky candy such as caramels and taffy
  • Citrus fruit
  • Pickles
  • Tomatoes

Make an appointment when the pain worsens, however. Untreated, nerve pain can lead to other issues. For example, an abscess is an infection that can get into your blood stream and run rampant throughout your whole body.

Signs of Serious Nerve Pain

If you have an infection causing your nerve pain, the treatment likely is more extensive than if you just have a popcorn kernel lodged underneath a crown. You may need to take a round of antibiotics or have the abscess drained. One of the signs of an abscess in addition to pain when you chew is a bad taste in your mouth and a foul odor. Other signs that may indicate a serious condition include:

  • The pain from exposure to extreme temperatures lasts longer than 15 seconds or so
  • You also have jaw pain
  • Your pain also radiates to your cheek or ears
  • A discharge or bleeding around your gums
  • Facial swelling
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • An injury or accident that occurred to your mouth

Seek immediate medical attention if your tooth nerve pain is associated with:

  • High fever
  • Heart pain
  • Lightheadedness
  • Vomiting or nausea
  • A rash on your face
