General discomfort, increasing sensitivity, and toothache pain is often a sign that the tooth in question is in significant distress. It often indicates that the internal structure of the tooth has been affected by some form of dental trauma or tooth decay.
If you have a distressed tooth, you need to seek timely treatment from a dentist like Dr. David Solomon. The longer you delay professional dental care, the more likely you are to experience significant complications. Left untreated a dangerous infection or dental abscess could start to develop in the underlying periodontal tissues.
Gently rubbing a topical, oral analgesic on your gums might provide you with some temporary relief from toothache pain. This might help you manage the anxiety and discomfort while you wait for your appointment.
Dr. David Solomon will examine the tooth and take a few X-rays. Once he has diagnosed the source and severity of the problem, he will recommend a course of treatment.
If an area of tooth decay threatens the sensitive internal structure of the tooth a Dr. David Solomon will need to perform a root canal. This will remove any compromised material and rebuild the structure necessary to secure a dental crown.
