As hard as your tooth enamel is, there are still times when poor oral hygiene and other oral health complications can deplete it. As a new cavity starts to form, you might notice increased sensitivity or discomfort, a change in texture, or a mild discoloration. Without treatment, this decay can grow and eventually reach the interior of your tooth.
As this it starts to affect the pulp and root of the tooth it can distress the nerve as well as cause discomfort in the underlying gum tissues. This can cause significant discomfort.
If you have a toothache pain, you should get in touch with our dentist, Dr. Jason Nicoletti. After an examination he will talk with you about your treatment options. Your treatment may include a root canal. After the root canal is finished, the dentist may suggest a dental crown.
If a dangerous dental abscess has been detected, the dentist may need to drain the fluid. In a severe, case the tooth may need to be extracted.
After all the affected tissues in the area have fully healed Dr. Jason Nicoletti can help you understand your dental restoration options. This often calls for replicating the tooth with a dental bridge or installing a dental implant which will eventually be fitted with a dental crown.
