Toothaches can happen to anyone over the course of their lives. A toothache is usually the cause of some type of tooth decay or problem inside the tooth such as an infection.Toothaches can range from mild to severe, but in either way they are painful and many patients need to come in to see our doctor at Darien Dental to have their tooth looked at. If you are suffering from a Darien toothache, give us a call today and we’ll be sure to fit you right into our schedule. We know that you don’t want to wait around when you have a painful toothache. We’ll do an oral exam around the area to find out it just exactly what it is. X-rays may be needed as well. Once we figure out exactly what the toothache stems from, we can then provide a treatment plan for you
Tooth decay can damage the tooth and cause pain, swelling and gum disease if it isn’t fixed. The tooth might also crack over time or break. Cavities are a main reason teeth start to hurt, cause a Darien toothache or may need to be pulled. If cavities aren’t handled in a timely manner, they can get worse and create decay to the point where the root is damaged. Major toothaches may signal the need for a root canal, or that gum disease is present.
If you are suffering from a toothache, call our office so that we can schedule you for an appointment to come in and have it looked at. Most toothaches can be fixed with a filling if the problem is a simple cavity. But if the pulp becomes inflamed, a root canal may be needed to save the tooth and stop the Darien toothache in its tracks. Patients usually feel much better afterwards.
