A 90023 toothache
has the tendency of announcing itself loud and clear, doesn't it? Our first goal here at Whittier Dental Group is to help you to avoid them, and our secondary one is to treat it promptly. We see no need for our valued patients like you to suffer unnecessarily. The more you know about the common causes of toothaches and how we deal with them, the better prepared you will be to act immediately.
Most times, pain in your tooth will be the result of an exposed nerve. The difference can be found in what has led to that occurring. Your teeth have a protective layer around each, and only when it is breached are you likely to sustain a 90023 toothache. Dental plaque and tartar decay tooth enamel to form cavities. When a cavity becomes large enough, the exposed nerve results in pain from sensitivity. The same is true when a filling comes loose and falls out. But your tooth could also be chipped or cracked. Not only will you experience a 90023 toothache
, but the longer you go without the cause of it being treated, the greater the chance for a bacterial infection to set in. If that occurs then instead of a filling or a crown, you will be looking at root canal treatment. That is typically a phrase that gets people's attention. Although it is not something you would look forward to, advancements in both techniques and equipment mean that there is no reason to be scared of one, either. The worst case scenario of any toothache is that your tooth may need to be extracted. We, of course, make every effort to prevent that form happening.
At the first sign of tooth pain, be sure to reach out to us and we will make certain that you are seen as quickly as we can schedule you.
