Tooth pain can be hard for you to ignore, particularly when it stops you from being able to comfortably bite and chew food. Any time discomfort points to an oral health problem, you should have it looked at, as ignoring the matter can lead to more trouble in the near future. What you are feeling could be the symptom of an infection or internal injury, something that can lead to real consequences, including the loss of your tooth! Fortunately, Sunny Smiles is prepared to help patients who experience discomfort. When the problem is specific to a tooth, we can evaluate it to see what kind of restorative work might need to occur. We make access easier when the problem feels severe, too, as we can provide emergency dental services when needed.
Dental Pain Is Not Something To Take Lightly
Problems with dental pain or sensitivity should not be taken lightly, because what you are ignoring could already be serious. An injury that affects the inner structure of your tooth or a cavity that has worsened to the point of causing an infection is a serious threat. In time, it can lead to complications as bacteria spread beyond the roots and create problems for you elsewhere. This means the onset of new issues because of bacteria as well as the deterioration of your tooth’s health to the point where it cannot be saved!
What Will It Take To Resolve A Problem Causing You Discomfort?
When you come in for an evaluation, we will closely review your problem tooth to determine what is happening and how you can be treated. A root canal procedure can be a necessary step in stopping further problems with your tooth and overall oral health issues. Through this service, your dentist can access the worrying infection within the pulp—the inner chamber of the tooth—in order to remove it and tend to the effects of bacteria having infiltrated. After this is done, we can proceed with work to safely restore the tooth and keep it safe.
Restoring Your Tooth To Keep It Safe
A dental crown can protect your tooth after its health has been restored. When capping the tooth, we will make sure that you have a restoration that is just the right shape and size to offer a secure fit and make sure that your smile maintains a natural appearance. In addition to being lifelike, materials we use to make smile-friendly crowns can support your bite health and function.
