Pain within a tooth, severe sensitivity, pressure, or discomfort in your gums can be a serious cause for concern. These classic symptoms of a toothache often indicate that the internal structures of the tooth have been compromised by dental trauma, an untreated cavity, or severe tooth decay.
The longer you delay in seeking professional treatment at Dr. Taylor Goggins’s dental office the more likely you are to experience increasing pain and more severe complications.
If your toothache pain is related to untreated tooth decay it likely means that the bacterial presence has penetrated the pulp, nerve, or root of the tooth. If you have recently suffered a dental trauma, it’s possible that the accident may have injured the internal structures of the tooth or an area of gum tissue. Even if the traumatic event occurred a few days ago, the toothache could be the result of inflammation.
Once Dr. Taylor Goggins has assessed and diagnosed the underlying cause of your toothache he will present you with some possible treatment options. In many cases, this calls for performing a root canal to extract any compromised structures. Once this is done he will restore sufficient structure to secure a dental crown in place.
