Any type of lingering tooth pain is a sure sign that it is time to call the dentist. If we address the problem as soon as you experience pain, we can help you avoid more complicated and painful problems later on. We would rather find out that your problem is minor than have you risk damaging your oral health by waiting to call!
There are numerous reasons why you might suffer a toothache:
- Tooth decay
- Advanced gum disease
- Infected root canal
- Chronic teeth grinding
- Misaligned dental bite
Avoiding the inevitable is never good because whatever is causing the pain is sure to worsen over time. When pain is still minor is the best time to call us because there is a good chance we can prevent a small problem from becoming major.
Whatever the reason for your tooth pain, the first step is to provide you with relief. We understand that even a mild toothache can make it hard to function, so we will do our best to see you the same day.
