Is It Time to Treat a Toothache?

Posted .

If you are suffering persistent tooth pain, the best time to receive treatment is now. We urge you to never ignore dental pain, or else you may experience heightened discomfort and need to receive more invasive dental work before too long. Ongoing tooth pain can be addressed by our dentist and team to help you enjoy better dental health free of discomfort.

There are many reasons why you may have a toothache. If an object has become stuck between the teeth or around the gums, it could cause irritation in your mouth. However, toothaches can also be the result of serious dental health problems, including cracked teeth, oral infection, gum disease and cavities. Treatment for a toothache depends on how severe your discomfort is and what is causing it.

It’s always a good idea to see the dentist at the first sign of a toothache, when the damage is minimal and treatment can be at its most conservative, preventing the need for costly repairs. Dr. Glenn D. Balkins, Mark P. Swensen and Dr. Haslam can provide customized treatment depending on your needs, such as prescription antibiotics, a deep cleaning to remove infection or root canal therapy.

If you can’t visit our office right away, we invite you try some home remedies for a toothache to reduce pain. These include cleaning between the teeth to remove objects and applying a cool compress outside the painful tooth. We encourage you to give North Point Dental Group, LLC a call at 541-754-4017 today to meet with our dentist and learn more about toothache treatment in Corvallis, Oregon.
