How Today’s Dental Can Help with Tooth Pain
It’s a good idea to go to your dentist in Omaha when you have tooth pain. It could be a sign of a more serious problem, and your dentist can help diagnose the problem and provide an effective treatment plan to relieve the pain. When you are at our office, the dentist will physically examine your teeth, gums, and mouth, and may take an x-ray of the problem area. If the tooth pain is due to tooth decay, you will need to get the cavity filled. If the tooth has an infection, you may need a root canal. In severe cases, you may need to have a tooth extracted. Our dentists at Today’s Dental might prescribe medication for the pain and/or antibiotics for the infection.If we cannot find the cause of the tooth pain or suspect it is referred pain from another source of your body, we may give you a referral to a medical doctor who can treat your problem.
For home remedies, you can try over-the-counter pain medication, or applying clove oil to the sore tooth, but you should always check with your dentist first before proceeding. At Today’s Dental in Omaha, we provide expert care to all patients who come in for toothaches. We have the skills and resources to take care of your dental problem, so you can go home with a healthier mouth.
