Relieve tooth pain and restore your oral health

Are you suffering from tooth pain? Whether your tooth pain is sharp and sudden or dull and achy, it can be debilitating. Toothaches can cause issues with eating, concentrating, sleeping, and just getting through the day.

A toothache is the result of nerve irritation in the root of a tooth and can have a variety of causes. Our skilled team of clinicians at Village Dental will determine the cause of your pain and make recommendations for effective treatments. Our office is a warm and comfortable environment designed to reduce anxiety and make you feel at ease throughout your appointment.

We offer same-day appointments for emergency care. Let us help relieve your tooth pain today.

Common causes of tooth pain

Tooth pain is a common problem and can have a major impact on your general health and quality of life. There are a number of potential causes for tooth pain, and understanding the source of your discomfort is the first step to treating it.

Your tooth pain may be caused by:

  • Tooth decay/cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Grinding (bruxism)
  • Erosion of the enamel
  • Traumatic injury
  • Abscessed tooth (root infection)
  • Impacted tooth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Broken filling

When you visit Village Dental, we’ll ask you questions about the type and severity of tooth pain you’re experiencing and perform a comprehensive oral exam to determine what’s causing the problem. We may also take x-rays to diagnose the source of the pain. Once we have identified the problem, we’ll make treatment recommendations and discuss all your options with you openly.

Common treatments for tooth pain


Tooth pain and sensitivity may be caused by tooth decay that has formed a cavity. We can clean out the cavity and use dental fillings to restore the affected area and protect your teeth to prevent future pain.

Root Canals

In some cases, root canal therapy may be necessary to prevent the need for an extraction and restore the beauty and function of your smile. We provide a comfortable, stress-free environment for root canal treatments, and we can help reduce any dental anxiety.


We do everything we can to preserve your natural teeth, but an extraction may be necessary in some cases. We offer same-day appointments, so if you’re in significant pain and need an emergency extraction, we’re here to help. Plus, we’ll make a plan for replacing the tooth.

What can I do to prevent tooth pain?

While tooth pain can occur for a number of reasons, there are certain habits you can adopt to reduce your risk of developing pain and other associated oral health conditions:

  • Practice at-home oral care by brushing twice daily, flossing once daily, and using a gentle mouthwash
  • Visit your dentist for a cleaning and exam every six months
  • Avoid smoking and limit alcohol intake
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet
  • Wear a nighttime mouthguard to avoid grinding your teeth during sleep
