Latent cavities and infections within the once healthy core of a tooth don’t always remain isolated to a single tooth. In time the bacterial presence of untreated tooth decay can start to invade the underlying periodontal tissues.
As this starts to happen, you will likely experience growing toothache pain. Eventually, you might also notice a building pain and pressure deep within your gums. This is an obvious sign of significant distress in the compromised tooth, and you should not delay in seeking treatment at our clinic.
If it’s caught early, one of our dentists might be able to treat the tooth by performing a root canal followed up by a course of prescription antibiotics to clear up any latent infection. A large dental abscess might require us to extract the tooth and excise any infected material. This will prevent the bacteria from passing from the abscess to your bloodstream.
If an extraction was required we will likely provide you with a prescription for pain medication and antibiotics. Once your gums have fully healed, we can help you understand the dental restoration options available at New Image Dentistry & Orthodontics.
If you are in the Glendale, Arizona, region and you have a toothache or a significantly distressed tooth, you should not delay in calling 623-825-9445 to seek timely treatment with one of our skilled dentists. Dr. Daniel J. Cloward, Dr. Azfar A. Siddiqui are always here for your smile!
