at the earliest opportunity.
There are various reasons why you might have a toothache. Even gum disease or jaw problems, such as TMJ disorder, can be responsible. However, it is far more common for one to develop due to an exposed nerve, which happens when your tooth's protective layers are broken down. There are four typical ways this occurs. First is the formation of a cavity due to tooth decay. Related to that is the loss of a filling that was previously put in. Both instances have a similar solution. Our dentist office in 93036
puts in a new or replacement filing to make your tooth whole again. Time is of the essence, because the longer the inner part of the tooth is exposed, the more chance there is for a bacterial infection to take place. The same is true when your tooth is chipped or cracked. Prompt treatment is vital. The type of treatment is different, however. A crown will be fashioned from impressions taken. You will be fitted with a temporary one to protect the tooth while the dental lab makes your permanent one. Again, the goal is to avoid an infection, which is the fourth way that toothaches commonly come about. Pain may be worse in that case, and can even be excruciating. Root canal is the answer. And with modern techniques and equipment, it's not a procedure you need to fear. It should produce no pain at all, or very little.
