While a minor toothache can be treated with over the counter medication, you shouldn’t wait on a serious toothache. If your toothache includes throbbing pain, radiates through the jaw or other locations or seems to be getting worse, seek help right away.
A swollen jaw is often a sign of an infection in the teeth. The jaw itself can be affected and may even become locked in place. Come to the office ASAP. We will help you feel better while we identify the root of the problem and take action.
When a tooth sustains any kind of damage, it becomes that much more likely to chip, crack, or even fall out in the future. While a small crack can wait until morning, a crack that produces any type of discharge or uncomfortable sensation should be fixed immediately.
Repair of Lost or Loose Fillings
Fillings usually last about 10-15 years, which means many adults find their old fillings unexpectedly wear out. When a filling is damaged, the exposed tooth is highly vulnerable to decay and the tooth may even be lost. Get help as soon as you can.
