You might be working, running errands, watching TV, or enjoying a good book, when suddenly that all too familiar sensation hits you. Toothaches are unmistakable. And it is not uncommon for them to occur at inconvenient times. Fortunately, we at Center for Cosmetic Dentistry are available for emergency care to address your toothache in the fastest and most effective fashion possible.
Our 11010 dentist
will help you to limit the chances of experiencing toothaches, by recommending twice-yearly oral examinations and teeth cleaning for proactive care and preventive maintenance. But nothing will give you 100% assurance that you will never suffer tooth pain. Cavities are one of the major sources of it. Tooth decay from dental plaque and tartar may eventually open up a hole in your tooth structure that exposes the nerve inside. And even cavities that were once filled are not immune. Sooner or later, it's possible for filings to loosen or fall out, leaving the same opening as it had originally. Those aren't the only ways that your inner tooth becomes exposed. A chip, crack, or fracture can also cause that. But the bigger concern is that when your tooth's normal protective barrier has been breached, you are susceptible for a bacterial infection. The pulp, next to the nerve, is delicate. And infection often means more than a toothache. Among the possibilities are swelling, tooth discoloration, and gum tenderness. The pain can become extreme. Just know that you can turn to our 11010 dentist
for prompt diagnosis and treatment. Of course, the more quickly you react to a toothache, the more likely it will be that you don't suffer an infection in the first place.
We understand the sense of urgency that a toothache represents. Call us immediately and we will have you seen by our 11010 dentist
as quickly as possible.
