The dental diagnosis of pain (traumatology) is one of our central areas of expertise. If you have toothache, you may find a first explanation in our pain compass. In any case, however, we recommend that you have your teeth examined by a specialist in our practice.

Pain diagnosis

Not all pain in the mouth and jaw is caused by teeth. If this is not recognised, teeth may be treated or removed unnecessarily, which does not eliminate the pain, but sometimes exacerbates it.

Diagnosis of chronic unclear tooth and jaw pain is often difficult. On the one hand, hidden dental problems must be excluded, e.g. small cracks or fractures. In the case of root-treated teeth, an additional search must be made for infected, previously uncleaned parts of the canal.

After the thorough exclusion of dental pain causes, specific signs of non-dental pain causes are searched for. A diagnosis is made from the combination of both approaches and appropriate therapeutic measures are recommended.

Often root-treated teeth are found in the area of chronic non-dental pain. It is particularly important here to achieve optimal endodontological treatment results in order to avoid additional dental problems.

If it comes to a dental accident: Keep calm.

  • If it bleeds: bite on a gauze cloth or tissue handkerchief, cool externally.
  • If the corner of a tooth has broken off and it is bleeding from the tooth: be sure to look for the broken corner and bring it to the practice, storing it in UHT milk or water.
  • If only the corner of a tooth is broken off, WITHOUT it bleeding from the tooth: make sure you look for the broken off corner and bring it with you to the practice in UHT milk or water.
  • If the tooth is loosened or displaced: leave the tooth as it is, do not touch it, close your mouth carefully.
  • If the tooth is completely broken out of the mouth: only touch the tooth by the crown, DO NOT CLEAN it, no matter what it looks like! The root of the tooth is very sensitive and must not be touched. If possible, store the tooth in a tooth rescue box. This is available in most sports facilities and swimming pools, emergency ambulances have such a rescue box in their equipment. If no tooth rescue box is available, store the tooth in UHT milk, if necessary in water.
