Tooth Pain Treatment
Whenever you experience pain, your body is trying to tell you something. The pain from a toothache could be debilitating. At its worst, tooth pain can make routine activities all but impossible. The dental professionals at Barrera Advanced Dentistry can eliminate the pain and restore your oral health.
Tooth pain levels can range from mildly annoying to excruciating and could be a symptom of a variety of dental problems, including a deep cavity, infected gums, an abscessed tooth, a broken or cracked tooth and more. Proper diagnosis and treatment will bring fast relief, improve your oral health and prevent more serious health problems from developing. Ignoring the pain and neglecting treatment could lead to grave consequences.
There are several reasons why you may experience a toothache. It could be as simple as a popcorn hull wedged deep between the gum and the tooth, or as complicated as an abscessed tooth with severe infection. The dental professionals at Barrera Advanced Dentistry will diagnose your tooth pain and deliver the appropriate treatment to relieve your discomfort.
If you are one of the millions of people who experience jaw pain, schedule an appointment with Barrera Advanced Dentistry, and let us help. Jaw pain can be intermittent and occur only during times of stress, or it can be more constant, interrupting your daily routine due to the pain. Some individuals will experience referred pain, which can be headaches or pain in the face, neck or shoulder.
The most common cause of jaw pain is tooth grinding, or bruxism. Clenching the jaw is another common source of pain. This can happen unconsciously and often occurs during sleep. Treatment for jaw pain can be as simple as wearing a nightguard. This oral device holds the teeth in place while your sleep and prevents grinding of the teeth.
The nightguard is custom made to fit your mouth. Your dentist will recommend the best type of mouthguard for your condition. Some nightguards are hard plastic while others are cushioned. They provide you with a comfortable rest and prevent the additional strain on your jaw muscles that comes from grinding and clenching.
Jaw pain can be the result of other conditions as well, such as arthritis, wisdom tooth impaction or injury to the jaw muscles. Proper diagnosis of the problem is necessary to find an appropriate treatment. Contact Barrera Advance Dentistry today for a consultation and examination to end your jaw pain.
