If you are experiencing painful teeth then here could be an underlying dental problem that needs to be addressed.
If you experience short term pain when eating or drinking hot or cold food/beverages then you may just have sensitive teeth. This can sometimes be alleviated with a special type of toothpaste for sensitive teeth. Acid in food and drink can soften the enamel on your teeth which can lead to the enamel becoming thinner. These toothpastes help protect the teeth when this has happened. If this does not help you must make an appointment with your dentist.
Bacteria in the mouth will often lead to the demineralising of the tooth surface leading to a cavity. Your dentist will need to remove the decayed tooth material and restore the tooth. Your dentist will often use a filling material or inlay to replace the tooth material. If the decay was extensive and the tooth structure was compromised then a crown may have to be used to restore the tooth.
If the nerve in the tooth has died from decay or injury then a root canal treatment is needed. If this is possible then it means the tooth can be saved.
An abscess is an infection at the root of a tooth or between the gum and your tooth. An abscess is usually very painful and is caused by decay or trauma.
The objective is to get rid of the infection and preserve the tooth.
If the tooth has severe decay then an extraction may be the only solution if the tooth cannot be restored.
Dental Treatment in Hungary
Patients often go to Hungary to see the dentist to have several missing teeth replaced or to have extensive restoration work done. Unless your Hungarian dentist has a dental clinic in the UK also then you may need to go to your regular dentist for small treatment before restoration work begins in Hungary.
