How your dentist can help with your toothache pain

You don’t need to suffer from a toothache. In the early days of dentistry, if you had a toothache, your dentist would simply extract the tooth! Now, thanks to modern procedures, techniques, and materials, there are many services available to relieve pain, repair your tooth, Toothacheand let you keep your smile. Dr. John Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, California wants you to know the services available to help you find an end to your toothaches.

If you have an infected or abscessed tooth it can be extremely painful. Teeth can become abscessed from severe decay or trauma. Root canal treatment, commonly called endodontics, is the option of choice to clean out diseased tissue from inside your tooth and eliminate your pain. Root canals are a great option if you have severe pain but don’t want to lose your tooth.

If you have a tooth that is badly damaged or broken, in most cases, you should consider a dental crown, rather than a large filling. That’s because a dental crown will completely cover the visible part of your tooth and protect it from breaking. Large fillings, on the other hand, can actually weaken a tooth and make it more prone to breakage.

Dr. Stockdale wants you to know crowns can be made of gold for extra strength, or porcelain for beauty. Porcelain-fused-to-gold crowns are both strong and beautiful. Another dental crown option available from Dr. Stockdale is CEREC, same-day crowns. These are beautiful porcelain crowns made right in the office in one visit.

Sometimes a tooth is not a candidate to be saved. Some teeth are too painful and too damaged and they may compromise the teeth around them. In these cases, Dr. Stockdale may recommend tooth extraction, but don’t worry! There are many options available to replace teeth that need to be extracted. Dr. Stockdale offers a full range of specialty dentures and dental implants to give you back your smile.
