Don't Ignore That Tooth Pain!

Woman with mouth painFrom a throbbing 3 am toothache to a cracked tooth due to a sports injury, dental pain can be one of the most bothersome experiences anyone can have. The sensation is uncomfortable, and it often signifies a larger issue that’s been simmering beneath the surface. Ignoring it, or delaying treatment, could worsen the condition and lead to more severe consequences.

That’s why contacting your dentist immediately is crucial if you experience any form of dental pain.

How We Address Tooth Pain

It’s important that we first get a thorough understanding of your oral health. If you’re experiencing a toothache and haven’t visited the dentist in a while, we encourage you to schedule an appointment.

The first step is to conduct a thorough evaluation of your entire mouth. This assessment gives Dr. Dustin Jacobs a picture of the state of your oral health and the direction we need to take to relieve your pain and restore your mouth to a healthy state.

Once we’ve addressed the immediate problem causing your pain, we can then focus on any additional treatments needed. Remember, existing problems, if left untreated, continue to worsen over time. A simple cavity, for instance, could turn into a root canal situation if not promptly addressed.
