When you have a toothache, it can hinder your eating, speaking and performance of your daily tasks. Sometimes the pain can be unbearable. But what are you supposed to do for a toothache? Some minor tooth pain or sensitivity can be treated at home, but the majority of the time it will need the help of your dentist. Tooth pain, a dental abscess, or a broken restoration can point to serious oral health problems that could compromise your total body health. Don’t live with the pain – get the healthy relief you deserve!
If you are suffering from a toothache that has lasted longer than a day or two, the pain could be a symptom of a complex issue. Our doctor will carefully examine the tooth and gum line, searching for signs of infection. If necessary, we will utilize our various digital imaging technologies to get an in-depth view of the problem.
Dental abscesses are the results of untreated infections that have developed just below the gum line. During your emergency dentist appointment, our doctors will examine the abscess and may recommend an emergency tooth extraction or an emergency root canal, if necessary.
Knocked Out or Broken Teeth
Knocked out or broken teeth aren’t just cosmetic issues. They can actually lead to dangerous infections and other oral health concerns. If you or your child have suffered a cracked tooth, knocked out tooth, or broken tooth, preserve the tooth as best you can and call immediately to our dentist office for further instructions.
