Whether your tooth pain stems from dental decay, injury, or infection – toothaches can be debilitating and disruptive to your everyday life. Depending on your unique needs and what is causing your tooth pain, SmileScapes in Alpharetta, Georgia, can offer you a comprehensive treatment plan to relieve you from your tooth pain.
Symptoms and Causes of Tooth Pain
The type of tooth pain that you experiencing will signal what is causing the pain. Tooth pain can range from sensitivity when hot or cold foods and liquids are consumed to a toothache that is persistent, sharp, and throbbing.
Tooth sensitivity when eating or drinking hot or cold beverages can be an indication that you have a cavity or exposed root surface. Or, it could be a sign that you have sensitive teeth. Either way, it is important to consult with an experienced dentist like Dr. Woods to rule out a cavity. The team at Smilescapes can provide treatment for your cavity or offer a recommended course of action for sensitive teeth.
If you are experiencing sharp, throbbing, and constant tooth pain, you should immediately see Dr. Woods. This pain can be an indication that you have a serious cavity or cracked tooth. If left neglected, dental infections can spread to other parts of the face and skull and possibly even to the bloodstream.
Treatment Options for Tooth Pain
Your recommended course of treatment for tooth pain will depend on the cause of your toothache.
If you are experiencing teeth sensitivity once in a while, Dr. Woods can provide recommendations such as a specific toothpaste that will help ease the sensitivity.
If a cavity is causing the toothache, it is necessary to fill the cavity or possibly extract the tooth if it’s not salvageable. Bacteria that worked its way into the tooth’s nerve may require Dr. Woods to perform a root canal. The professionals at SmileScapes dentistry can diagnose and treat your toothache to relieve your tooth pain.
