How Do You Treat Toothaches?

Knowing how to handle a dental emergency can be the difference between losing and saving a tooth with pain. An infection can cause severe pain and swelling, to subside the swelling use cold compress on the area until you’re are seen by your dentist for further instruction. At Canyon Dental, located in Corona, California, we have seen and successfully treated patients with a variety of toothaches.

What Are My Options?

A toothache can have many options to the treatment performed on it. In a istock_000014727337_largemedical facility when a problem is presented they typically give you one option, which is recommended by the doctor to the best of their knowledge. At Canyon Dental, when Dr. Shikha Banerjee is presented with a toothache, she addresses the tooth after carefully examining the x-ray, and in most cases she can give you several options in treating it. These options range from a filling, a root canal therapy, or extraction of the tooth, even as simple as a cleaning of the area with some antibacterial irrigation.

What About Cost?

All these options range in cost, and can get quite costly if the right solution is not taken. Most people opt to extracting the tooth because they think it’s more cost efficient, when in fact can be even more costly due to the replacement of it. Replacing a missing tooth includes replacing the bone, and then the tooth, in which you can replace with a removable partial or a bridge or an implant. We present you your options and prices and then decide which is best for you. Although it might feel as a simple toothache, as you can see, the problem can go far beyond the exterior look of the tooth. Many Americans go without dental care, neglecting their oral health causing infections and in some cases severe pain and or loss of teeth. Although there are many home remedies available out there these are not always the best solutions in fact may be the cause to permanently losing the tooth. It seems as if you are more prone to a toothache when you are out of reach to your providing dentist. In which case you should contact them for advice on your specific situation, and they can point you in the right direction.
