Addressing A Toothache

toothquestionAre you worried about coming in to see us for your toothache because you’re concerned something serious is wrong? Fortunately, whether you’re dealing with a bit of irritation or an infection, there’s no reason to hesitate. The more quickly we identify and address the problem with our compassionate care, the sooner you will return to comfort. What you need to remember is that acting with urgency is always in your best interest. Rescuing your oral health and preventing serious side effects like tooth loss is always easier when we can restore your smile before an issue advances.

Is It Decay?

When you visit us for a toothache and we determine that the problem is tooth decay, we will suggest you receive a dental filling. The good news is that you will quickly find yourself with a comfortable tooth again (that looks natural and restored, thanks to our use of white fillings). The moment you notice any discomfort or sensitivity is the best time to visit us – the sooner we detect this oral health concern, the more successfully we can help you avoid complications (like infection).

Is It Infection?

Perhaps you had a cavity that you neglected, you cracked your tooth, or sneaky bacteria simply found a way to make themselves welcome within your tooth. Whatever the case, a toothache (often accompanied by throbbing) may be a symptom of an underlying infection. We can address the issue with a root canal treatment, which includes removal of your internal tooth tissues, the sealing of your roots, the filling of your tooth, and dental crown placement. This is the only way to clear the infection and reestablish good oral health.
