If you are struggling with tooth pain, it may be difficult to think clearly about what steps you should take to address the matter. One important detail to remember is that if you are in serious pain, or if your pain has been a problem for a worrying length of time, emergency dental care is available. Problems with persistent or serious pain can call for restorative treatment. If you do not go in for care in time, the problem can worsen so much that tooth extraction is the only option left for your care. Sunny Smiles provides a variety of services for patients affected by oral health problems, including problems that cause tooth pain to occur. After work is complete, we can restore the tooth in question to preserve its appearance and ability to provide bite support.
When Should I Tell My Dentist About Tooth Pain?
If you have tooth pain that does not subside after a short time, or if the degree of discomfort you feel concerns you, let your dentist know as soon as possible that something is wrong. The sooner you communicate what is happening, the sooner we can begin plans to see you and care for you. This pain you feel can be linked to an infection or physical injury that will require root canal therapy. If this service is not provided in time, an infection can cause worsening problems for you, and it can eventually lead to the loss of your tooth!
Addressing Pain Caused By An Infection
Through root canal therapy, your dentist can carefully remove bacteria and damaged tissues from within your tooth structure. Completing this work puts a stop to the problem causing you pain. Once the procedure is complete, your pulp (the central chamber of your tooth) is sealed, and a dental crown is provided. A crown can provide lasting protection so that you do not have to change the way you bite and chew. When restoring teeth that are harder to hide when you bite and speak, we can recommend using a crown that matches the appearance of your healthy enamel.
Can Tooth Pain Call For Emergency Treatment?
Serious or enduring tooth pain can call for emergency treatment. You should think about emergency dental work as more than just a chance to see someone after physical trauma. When you have symptoms of a serious problem, like persistent or severe pain, seeking care quickly will be important. We can bring you in on short notice to start the process of restoring your oral health.
