Don’t feel shy about getting immediate care for your toothache. It’s an urgent matter, and one that we at Southern Magnolia Smiles treat as the emergency that it is. Part of the reason for that is to offer you relief from the pain, but also because the sooner you get treatment, the less likely it is that you will suffer an infection or need to have the tooth removed.
When you feel the very first twinge, that’s when you should act. Too often, people ignore the situation or put off getting attention for it, hoping it will simply go away on its own. Unfortunately, that is not very common. Much more common is for the toothache to get worse. And as mentioned earlier, that can lead to circumstances that you would much rather avoid. Come in promptly. The matter may be easily remedied by our 39564 dentist with a filling or a dental crown. Most of the time, a toothache is due to nerve exposure caused by a breach of your tooth’s natural protective barrier, the enamel and dentin layers. This can be a large cavity, a loose or lost filling, or a chipped or cracked tooth. Our 39564 dentist will examine the tooth and take imaging to determine the best treatment approach. If bacteria manages to get inside the tooth and infect the pulp, which is right next to the nerve, the solution is to perform root canal therapy. The good news is that this procedure is not the scary one that its former reputation suggested. Modern techniques and state-of-the-art equipment combine to produce a comfortable experience.
Don’t suffer needlessly. Our 39564 dentist is available when you have a dental emergency. All you have to do is call our office and we will make certain that you are seen as quickly as we can manage.
