There is no mistaking the feeling of a toothache. And all too often, they strike at the most inconvenient moments. Fortunately, we at DeVaney Dentistry offer emergency care for prompt relief.
What causes toothaches? A full list would take up way more room than we have here, including sources outside the tooth itself, such as advanced gum disease or the jaw condition called TMJ disorder. However, the typical causes are cavities, loose or lost fillings, and chipped or cracked teeth. Our 27310 dentist will diagnose you with an examination and x-rays. It's important that you do not let the toothache just linger. You may feel that you can handle the pain, but that's not really the point. What is vital is that your toothache is there to provide an alert. Your body is telling you something. The nerve inside your tooth has been exposed, and the pulp next to it is prone to infection. The longer you wait before seeing our 27310 dentist, the more chance there is of that outcome. And because an infection will mean root canal therapy, it makes sense to take measures to keep it from happening in the first place. A cavity or filling that is no longer viable will be addressed with a new filling. If the tooth has been chipped or cracked, a dental crown is the solution. And if you do need root canal, rest assured that the advancements in techniques and equipment have made it a comfortable procedure, and one that is successful in saving the tooth in question at least 90% of the time, especially when performed right away. The worst case scenario with a toothache is that you may lose the tooth, something we work hard to avoid.
Turn to our 27310 dentist for urgent attention when you are suffering with a toothache. You're assured of expert, gentle care regardless of the cause of it.
