Pain relief

Pain relief

Pain is the “emotional and physical response to a real or perceived noxious stimulus”. What does this mean?

It means that everyone perceives pain differently. Some people say they have a high pain threshold, whilst others admit to feeling pain more than some.

Whatever category a patient falls into- this pain is real, and it needs to be addressed.

Dental pain ranks as one of the worst pains that the human body can dish out.

Dental pain can come in many forms; it can be due to;
  • Tooth sensitivity

  • Dental abscesses

  • Cracked teeth

  • Gum pain

  • Tooth ligament pain

  • Sinus pain

  • Tension headaches

  • Jaw joint pain (TMJ)

  • Myofascial pain (face and chewing muscles)

  • Neuralgias and nerve pains

  • Phantom and referred pain

As you can see, there are many different ways that a patient may present to the dentist.
Accurate diagnosis is the cornerstone of pain relief. Without knowing what is causing the pain, the wrong treatment may be administered.
Our dentists pride themselves on accurate and thorough diagnoses so we can be sure that you receive the best treatment.
