We Take Tooth Pain Seriously – You Should, Too
Posted December 18, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental
A nagging pain in your tooth can be a nuisance, but you should know that it can also be a symptom of a serious problem. One cause of persistent tooth pain is an infection in the interior of the tooth. This is often caused by an advanced cavity, but dental damage can also be responsible, especially if it results in a crack that exposes your pulp. If you do have an internal tooth issue, your dentist can correct it with a root canal treatment. If nothing is done, the problem affecting your tooth may lead to complications, and cause you to lose your tooth!
People do not typically respond with excitement when they learn that they need a root canal. However, it should be acknowledged that the procedure can save you from a potentially serious oral health threat. By removing an infection from your pulp, your dentist can stop bacteria from killing that tooth, and spreading further. After the treatment, your dentist will fit your tooth with a dental crown, which protects it, and allows you to continue biting and chewing normally.
If you want to lower the chances of suffering the kinds of problems that can cause a relentless toothache to develop, keep up with regular dental exams. Regular preventive dental care can lead to the discovery, and treatment, of developing tooth decay. This means having a less involved restorative treatment, and avoiding serious discomfort.
