What can your dentist in SW14 do about toothache?
Toothache is a difficult problem to deal with. It can affect your whole mood and, in some cases, cause some of the strongest pain that you can experience. Fortunately, your dentist in SW14, at Sheen Dental, is here to help. We have extensive skills to offer you for dealing with toothache.
If the pain you are experiencing is the result of a sudden impact or other accident and/ or you think you might lose your tooth, you may need the help of an emergency dentist. This also applies if you have sharp and unbearable pain. At Sheen Dental, we do our best to see you as soon as possible. We have an emergency, out-of-hours contact number that you can call. If we cannot repair the damage straight away, we can at least offer you treatment that can relive the pain while we plan any other work.
If you are not in acute pain, there are a number of different ways that your dentist might approach your toothache. They may offer long-term advice to improve your oral health and/ or dental hygiene routine, or they may need to consider a repair package or other treatment.
There are different ways in which you can experience pain in your teeth:
Persistent ache – if you have a deep pain that does not depend on circumstances, it may be an indicator of temporary damage or tooth decay. If it becomes intolerable or does not go within a couple of weeks, it’s time to see your dentist in SW14 at Sheen Dental so that we can help to diagnose the issue and offer you some relief;
Intermittent pain – Some toothache depends on what you are doing when you feel the sensations. For example, if you only experience toothache when you eat hot or cold food, it may be that you have sensitive teeth. If you feel it when you are brushing your teeth you might be brushing too hard. If it happens every time you chew, it could be a hole or a crack. Your dentist in SW14 can help to diagnose the problem by checking your teeth and asking you questions about your toothache.
