If you wake up one morning with a minor toothache or other discomfort in your mouth, it can be disconcerting. Even if you can mitigate the pain by taking a standard dosage of anti-inflammatory medication, or applying oral analgesic to your gums, you still need to have it examined by a professionally trained dentist like Drs. Tuft and Condie.
Without timely professional treatment the source of dental distress will inevitably continue to progress. This could result in more serious complications, including a dental abscess, tooth loss, or worsening pain.
After examining and assessing the severity of the toothache, your dentist will present you with the most applicable treatment plan. This often calls for them to perform a root canal to excise any distressed or traumatized tissues within the tooth. This will also include removing the tooth’s enamel layer.
Then your dentist will reconstruct the pulp and dentin layer of the tooth to create an abutment strong enough to anchor an eventual dental crown. This will effectively restore the tooth’s function and presence in your mouth without further pain, distress, or complications.
If you live in Springville, Utah, and you have been experiencing toothache pain, you should not delay in calling 801-489-7364 to seek treatment from the staff specialists at Condie & Tuft Family Dentistry.
