Why a toothache arises, there is typically little doubt about what it is, but you might not be sure of where it came from. At Ninth Avenue Dental, we treat them promptly to ensure that you don’t suffer with pain for any longer than you have to, and to promote the best possible outcomes, which means keeping your tooth strong and healthy.
You should act on your Greenwood toothache immediately. The essential cause is that your tooth’s nerve is exposed. What leads to that? It is the breach of your tooth’s protective layers. Often, a cavity is the culprit, but it could be also that a filling has come loose and/or fallen out. Chipped and cracked teeth are also typical. Your Greenwood toothache also leaves the pulp inside your tooth vulnerable to bacteria. And infection may set in, which is usually accompanied by one or more of the following symptoms: swelling, pain when chewing or applying pressure to the tooth, sensitivity to hot and cold items, gum tenderness, and tooth discoloration. Our dentist will make determinations about the cause of your toothache and whether there is infected tissue through a visual inspection, physical examination, and the taking of x-rays. The results of the above will make the applicable treatment apparent. Possibilities include a filling, a dental crown, root canal therapy, and the extraction of the tooth. There is no way to guarantee outcomes in advanced, but the more quickly you seek out our dental care, the better the chances are that you won’t lose the tooth.
Your Greenwood toothache doesn’t have to mean complications or irreversible consequences. Our dentist won’t cause you pain, but will instead relieve the pain you’re in. So don’t delay. Simply call us right now so that we can have you seen at the earliest opportunity.
