Patients often come into our Daly City cosmetic dental practice and complain about ‘a toothache the size of South San Francisco’. I understand this kind of pain, and realize that when you describe it like that, it really hurts. I can help.
Toothache pain can be unbearable for anyone. At the very least, toothache pain can cause you to avoid eating certain foods, certain temperatures, and even talking. Severe toothache pain can be downright debilitating, forcing patients to go to extreme measures to alleviate the pain.
Around South San Francisco, the most common causes of a toothache include tooth infection, decay, injury, and loss of a tooth. Tooth pain can also occur after a tooth has been extracted, or after a restorative dentistry oral surgery involving anything from a tooth or your jawbone.
I can help you better understand the source of your tooth pain, and in most cases can provide a nearly immediate remedy. In severe cases, we are equipped to council you on a variety of resolutions. Your pain may be fixed by root canals or just a simple filling.
Of course, the best way to avoid toothache pain is to visit your Daly City dentist often, and to care properly for your teeth including the regular regimen of brushing and flossing.
If you are experiencing tooth pain, and just can’t stand it any more, please give me a call; I am standing by to help.
