When You Have A Toothache That Just Won’t Go Away
Posted November 7, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental
Tooth pain be an irritant, and a potentially serious distraction throughout your day. When should you think of a toothache as something more than just an inconvenience? It is important to understand that a dental problem like tooth decay will not go away on its own. If you suspect your toothache might be the result of a cavity, seek restorative care from your dentist as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more damage your tooth will experience! You can count on expert care that will put a stop to a cavity’s growth, and end with you leaving the dentist’s office sporting a restoration that can protect your tooth without drawing unwanted attention.
If a cavity grows serious enough to attack the interior of your tooth, it will require a root canal procedure. Once this is completed, a dental crown will protect that tooth from harm, and make it a viable actor in biting and chewing tasks. Does every cavity need a root canal? If you seek care in time, you can have your tooth restored before this degree of damage occurs, and you can have your tooth restored with a dental filling.
If you experience regular tooth pain, it could be the result of a cavity that has already grown serious enough to require a root canal. However, you can reduce your risk of this taking place by going in for regular checkups. During routine evaluations, your dentist is able to look closely at your teeth. They may find that a cavity has formed, but stop it before it grows serious enough to require more than a filling.
