Your The Villages toothache may be mild or it may be severe, but the one thing that is certain is you need relief. You should absolutely not delay getting attention for it, because the matter can easily get worse by putting off your visit to our office here at Dentistry on the Square, where we are dedicated to treating toothaches in a prompt manner.
The four most common causes of toothaches are cavities, fillings, physical damage to the tooth, and an infection inside the tooth. There is some overlap among them. Infections are typically the result of another type of The Villages toothache that was not addressed quickly enough. The one thing that all of them share in common is that they are due to the protective barriers of your tooth becoming compromised. You have an enamel layer and beneath that is a dentin layer. They keep the nerve and pulp inside the tooth safe from the elements. When they are breached, that’s when you have tooth pain. In the absence of an infection, the remedy for your The Villages toothache will be fairly simple. A cavity or a loose or lost filling only needs a new filling put in, a task that can be completed in just one session, leaving your tooth viable and your tooth pain just an unpleasant memory. A chipped, cracked, or fractured tooth requires a dental crown, which takes two visits to complete. And should an infection be diagnosed, root canal therapy is the solution, and that can also take more than one session in total.
The key factor is that our dentist makes it a top priority to save your tooth and avoid an extraction if at all possible. When a toothache occurs, pick up your phone right away and reach out to us. We will have you seen as quickly as we can.
