Chipped Tooth Repair
Your teeth can withstand quite a bit of pressure and even some impact without damage. But if the exterior is chipped or cracked, the damage should be repaired quickly to keep any decay or infection from entering the interior of the tooth. Left untreated, bacteria and decay can infiltrate the softer pulp inside the tooth, causing internal damage. This can lead to abscesses, pain and infected teeth that may need root canal therapy, or worse, extraction if the damage becomes too severe.
Repairs To Cracked Or Broken Teeth
Small chips and cracks can be quickly filled or bonded to repair the outer portion of the tooth. Larger cracks and broken teeth may require more extensive repairs. This can include large fillings, bonding and dental crowns to protect the tooth. The extent of the damage will determine the type of repair needed to restore the tooth to health.
Tooth Pain Relief
When you have ongoing tooth pain, it is usually a symptom of an issue that needs dental treatment. Tooth pain means the nerve of the tooth is impacted, which resides inside the tooth. This can be caused by a crack in the tooth, decay or infection, all of which can jeopardize the health of your tooth. We use the latest technology to uncover the reason for your tooth discomfort and offer quick treatments to repair your dental issues. There is no need to fear treatment, as we will make sure you are comfortable while we fix your painful tooth. Once the source of the problem is gone, the pain will also go away.
Treatment For Jaw Pain
Jaw pain can be a sign that there is something wrong with your teeth or oral health. Jaw pain can be caused by misaligned teeth, TMJ or other jaw disorders. Those that grind their teeth in their sleep often have jaw pain, plus they may have damage to their teeth. If you have pain in your jaw, schedule an appointment at our office. We will diagnose the cause of the pain and offer treatment solutions to give you relief and protect your oral health.
