Toothaches Beechwood

Here at the office of Lakeside Smiles, some of the most common reasons that patients visit us seeking treatment from our expert Beechwood family dentist is because they are experiencing toothache symptoms. If you are ever feeling pain in a tooth, whether it is dull, or mild, or sharp and biting—whether the pain is constant or fleeting, you should always seek the professional opinion of our Beechwood family dentist. Toothaches are almost always indicative of a larger problem occurring that needs dental treatment in order to be resolved, so you should not wait too long for your symptoms to go away on their own, because it is likely that they will not, and likely that they will only get worse if they are not treated.

One major reason why toothaches occur is because the tooth is decayed. Tooth decay happens when bacteria like tartar and plaque release an acid that eats away at the tooth’s enamel, leaving small holes of decay called cavities in its wake. Teeth can become extra sensitive and can cause you pain if they are decayed. Another common cause of toothache is if a tooth is broken or cracked. Teeth can break or crack when you chew something hard, when you use your teeth to open something, as a result of trauma to the face, and more. If the tooth is broken or cracked, you are likely to experience sharper pain, and increased pain while biting down. If the pulp of the tooth becomes infected because it has been exposed because of a crack or break, then the pain is likely to be even worse. You should seek treatment from our Beechwood family dentist right away so that we can keep the tooth from becoming any more damaged.

One of the most common dental procedures performed is the routine of cavities. Plaque and tartar build up on the surface of teeth and along the gumline as we eat and drink throughout the day. This excess of buildup begins to eat away at the enamel of the tooth, causing tooth decay. These spots of decay form cavities which can grow and spread infection to the root of the tooth and inflame the gums and gum tissue. In order to prevent the spread of infection and decay, cavity fillings are necessary. These fillings have traditionally been metal, which are noticeable and stand out against the white of the natural tooth. Here at Lakeside Smiles, our Beechwood cosmetic dentists, Dr. Meyer and Dr. Vanderwal, can not only give you a more natural looking alternative but can replace your old metal fillings as well. Instead of traditional metal fillings that mar the appearance of your teeth, our Beechwood cosmetic dentists use newer fillings. These more recent types of dental fillings use ceramic and plastic mimic the appearance of your natural tooth and are virtually unnoticeable.

If you show any signs of having a cavity, such as tooth aches, persistent headaches, and tooth or gum sensitivity, you should schedule an appointment with us here at Lakeside Smiles as soon as possible. Treating a cavity as soon as possible is vital to preventing further damage or the need for more intensive procedures like root canal therapy or complete tooth removal. Our Beechwood cosmetic dentists can also give you newer fillings if you have no new cavities that need filling and can replace your old, metal fillings with ceramic and plastic ones that will give you a seamless smile.
