Tooth Pain Relief
When you have a toothache, it is a sign of oral health trouble. The nerves that signal tooth pain are deep inside the canals. They usually do not indicate pain unless there is an infection, decay or damage in the interior of the tooth. When you have tooth pain, it is important to schedule a dental exam to determine the cause and treatment options. Call us at Johns Creek Dental Studio when you have a toothache, and we will find the right solution to give your tooth pain relief at our clinic in Alpharetta, GA.
Tooth pain can be caused by a variety of issues. Cavities or tooth decay can cause a dull toothache or sensitivity to sugar, cold or heat. An abscess or tooth infection can cause more intense pain, especially if the infection causes inflammation inside or around the tooth. Cracks or damage to the tooth can also result in tooth pain. All these problems can be resolved with dental care to eliminate the pain and repair the tooth. A filling, dental bonding, root canal or dental crown may be recommended to fix the tooth and stop your toothache.
Treatment for Jaw Pain
Do you have a jaw that aches, or do you wake up with facial pain? The jaw joint and associated soft tissues can be impacted by your oral and dental health. At Johns Creek Dental Studio, we can perform a jaw joint screening to determine what is causing your jaw pain. You may have a misalignment, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ/TMD) or bruxism that is causing your jaw pain. Dr. Parikh can provide a diagnosis and treatment plan to address your jaw pain and give you relief.
Any oral pain should not be ignored. It is usually a symptom of a tooth or jaw disorder that needs treatment. Ignoring or covering up oral pain with medication can allow the problem to become worse. It is best to visit a dentist to find the problem and fix it before it becomes a bigger and more expensive issue.
