|A single problem tooth can keep distracting you from whatever it is you're trying to do. And, this is by no means an uncommon condition. The good news is that there are treatment options available that can quickly repair the condition and prevent it from spreading.
What are Some Dental Conditions that Afflict a Tooth and How do I Fix These?
Sensitive teeth are a common problem, and very often it's just one tooth that hurts. Tooth enamel erodes at that particular spot and exposes the sensitive dentin which reacts on exposure to contact. A tooth becomes sensitive over time because of overzealous brushing, acidic foods, acid reflux, etc. Desensitizing toothpaste for use at home or in-office treatments are two alternatives available for us.
A single tooth that has decayed because of bacterial infection is a common complaint. Molars and premolars decay because of poor oral hygiene. If the decay is not too severe, we will remove the decayed portion and use a filling for the exposed cavity.
If a tooth's filling comes loose, then the sensitive pulp underneath may cause pain. Bacterial growth beneath broken filling can lead to infection. The old filling or dental crown can be easily replaced.
An abscessed tooth, where the pulp has become infected, hurts and the subject may experience symptoms that include fever and even swelling of the face. An abscessed tooth can be saved via the root canal procedure.
As you can see, whatever the issue with a tooth, we have the solution for it. If you have a tooth that's bothering you and you wish to learn more about how to remedy the situation, then get in touch with us. For us, the first concern is to save the tooth, if possible. We'll tell you if the tooth can be saved or the treatment requires slightly more involved procedures. We are experts in dental care. Call us today.
