There are many factors that may cause tooth pain, including:
- Cracked teeth
- Exposed tooth roots
- Infection in the roots or nerves of the tooth
- Periodontal disease
- Medical conditions
Our endodontist will carefully examine your entire mouth and take X-rays of your teeth and supporting structures to find what is causing you pain. After we have diagnosed the problem, we will create an individualized treatment plan to eliminate the pain and help you regain your oral health.
In addition to tooth pain, you may also develop other symptoms. These other symptoms may be a sign that you need more extensive treatment, and we ask that you inform our endodontist if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Swollen or tender gums
- Bleeding of the gums
- Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
- Loose or misaligned teeth
- Very sensitive teeth
- Pain when chewing, biting or brushing your teeth
We recommend that you schedule and keep all regular appointments for preventive care with your dentist. This helps your dentist to monitor your oral health and works to keep you from develop dental problems that cause pain and discomfort.
