Toothaches are more than just an inconvenience. They are almost always a symptom that something more significant has affected the internal structures of the tooth. The longer you delay seeking professional care at Smiley Dental Broadway, the more likely you are to suffer severe complications.

First, we will start by examining the tooth and taking a few X-rays. Once your dentist has diagnosed the nature and extent of the problem, we will recommend a course of treatment.

If there is no direct trauma connected to the toothache, it likely means that a cavity has penetrated the sensitive interior structures of the tooth. In many of these cases, we might need to perform a root canal to remove any cavities or infected structures in the tooth.

You could try rubbing a topical oral analgesic on your gums to provide a little short-term relief. Just keep in mind that while this might numb the area in the short term, it should not be seen as an effective treatment of the underlying problem.

If you live in the Garland, Texas, area and you’re suffering from a toothache, you should not delay in calling 972.303.3600 to seek treatment at Smiley Dental Broadway.
