If you have a tooth that becomes painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when pressure is placed upon it, you most likely have a tooth that needs to have a root canal treatment. At Pioneer Dentistry of Conroe, our expert dentist, Dr. Okey Okechukwu, can determine the exact cause of your toothache and provide you with treatment at our Conroe dental office.

There are different reasons for a toothache. If you have a tooth that has infected or damaged pulp in the center, you will need to have a root canal treatment in order to save the tooth. Other common causes for toothaches are a tooth that has a dental cavity and becomes painful when you eat something that is sweet. Wisdom teeth are also common causes of toothaches, and when they cause problems, are usually extracted, as they are not needed in the mouth. Toothaches can also be caused by gum problems. At our Conroe dental office, our expert dentist will determine exactly what is causing your tooth problem and let you know which treatment is needed. If you need to have a root canal treatment to save the tooth, this will be determined by a clinical exam, as well as the findings of an x-ray. Today, patients are able to have root canal procedures performed at our office while they remain perfectly comfortable. This is due to our use of modern dental anesthesia, state-of-the-art technology, and the most recent proven dental techniques. Whenever possible, our dentist will want to save a tooth, rather than have it removed. The good news is the root canal procedures are able to save teeth in over 90% of cases. The sooner a root canal procedure is performed, the more likely it is to be effective, so you will always want to take an appointment to visit our dental practice sooner, rather than later.

Toothaches can range from mild to severe, and can have a variety of causes. At Pioneer Dentistry of Conroe, you can depend on our help to relieve the pain and other complications that can result from a toothache.

A cavity, especially if it’s large enough, may result in a toothache. Similarly, if you have a cavity that has already been treated with a filling, that filling may come loose and fall out. In both cases, you have a cavity that can be uncomfortable. The answer is very simple: a new or replacement filling. Other common reasons for a toothache include a chipped or cracked tooth, which may expose the nerve. The proper solution is to measure you for and create a crown that will cover the tooth and protect the nerve. Since impressions taken at our Conroe dental office have to be sent to the dental lab to have your permanent crown made, you will be fitted with a temporary one to mitigate your toothache in the meantime. When the protective layers of your tooth are breached by bacteria, you can get an infection inside the tooth, down in the pulp at the base. The pain you can experience, which can be excruciating in the worst cases, is evident when you chew or apply pressure to the tooth. Root canal therapy is required to alleviate your suffering and also to save the tooth. There is no need to worry, though. Modern techniques and equipment used at our Conroe dental office mean you will notice little or even no pain at all during the process. Other causes of a toothache are jaw issues, like TMJ disorder, and the effects of gum disease.

Contact our Conroe dental office when you have a toothache. We will make sure you are seen in a timely manner.
