What is the source of my toothache?
There are many things that can cause a toothache. If you’re experiencing tooth pain, the first course of action should be to gently floss and brush your teeth. This helps clear out any debris or food particles that could be causing the pain. If you still have pain, that could be a sign of decay in the tooth or an inflammation in the gums near that tooth. Call our office to come in for an exam if the pain doesn’t go away with brushing and flossing.
Why does my tooth feel cold?
Sensitivity to extreme cold or heat is actually quite common. Most often, this sensitivity is caused by weakened enamel (the hard outer layer of teeth). There are over-the-counter sensitivity toothpastes you can use to help alleviate some of the discomfort, or come in to see us to get to the root of the problem.
When do I need a filling?
If we discover signs of decay during an exam or with digital X-rays, we recommend having the decay removed and a tooth-colored filling placed. The filling is small and prevents further decay in that area of the tooth. Typically we can place your filling the same day you come in.
Why do I need a root canal?
An infection in the tooth, deep decay, or a severe dental trauma could all leave you in need of a root canal. Our goal is always to save your natural teeth. With a root canal, we can often avoid extraction and instead remove the infected or damaged tooth pulp. After a root canal, we top the tooth with a natural-looking dental crown, so your tooth will be protected and your smile will look as great as ever!
