No matter why you have a Valencia toothache, you need prompt attention to it. There are two reasons for this. First, you need relief for the pain. And second, some of the causes of a toothache can grow worse and create more alarming complications if not addressed in a timely manner. Here at the office of Alexander Villar DDS, we’re prepared to handle your tooth pain effectively and gently.
The most common reason for a Valencia toothache to arise is when tooth decay forms a large enough cavity in your enamel to allow the nerve inside to be exposed. Similarly, if you have an existing cavity that was previously filled, that old filling may come loose and fall out. Either way, your tooth’s nerve and pulp are now prone. Another way that can occur is when you chip or crack a tooth. And while it may be tempting to simply ignore a mild Valencia toothache, hoping it will just go away is not the best way to deal with it. First of all, you have pain for a reason. Treatment is required. Second, the longer the inner tooth is exposed, the greater the chances are for an infection to set in. Once that happens, you will be subject to even greater pain. And instead of needing a new or replacement filing, or a crown placed over the damaged tooth, root canal will be required. Sure, today’s version of this procedure is nothing to be frightened of, but you will still be far better off if you can avoid it entirely. It will cost you time and money, and possibly multiple visits to our office. If you do need it done, however, be assured that it has over a 90% success rate, and teeth treated with root canal can last as long as any other tooth.
Valencia CA dentist
If you are experiencing a toothache, you will want to make an immediate appointment to visit our dental practice, Alexander Villar DDS, for care. Our expert Valencia CA dentist, Dr. Alexander Villar, will thoroughly assess the reason for your tooth pain and provide you with appropriate treatment.
When you come to our dental practice complaining of tooth pain, there can be many different reasons for this tooth pain. Two common reasons are wisdom teeth which have become infected or impacted, or a tooth which is damaged or infected in its interior and needs to have a root canal treatment in order to be saved. If you have severe toothache pain while you are chewing, or while pressure is placed upon the tooth, you may have a tooth that needs to have a root canal treatment. Teeth which are damaged in this manner also may have extreme sensitivity to heat or cold. A tooth may even be discolored, or the gums may be swollen and tender. If your tooth is damaged and needs root canal treatment, our dentist will assess whether or not it can likely be saved with this procedure. Happily, over 90% of teeth can be saved by a root canal treatment. Our dentist can provide this treatment for you while you remain perfectly comfortable in our dentist’s chair. Our Valencia CA dentist, may also find that the cause of your toothache is an infected wisdom tooth. It is very common for people to have problems with their wisdom teeth, since wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the mouth to erupt. Often, by the time the wisdom teeth are ready to erupt, there simply is no room left for them. If wisdom teeth are impacted or infected, our dentist will probably recommend that they are extracted. At our dental practice we offer tooth extraction for wisdom teeth, or for other teeth which need to be extracted for some reason.
