A Toothache is Your Body’s Distress Signal
Sometimes a toothache is merely pain extending to the nerves of the teeth from excessive sinus pressure or an infected ear. However, an aching tooth can also mean that a cavity has developed and progressed deep into your tooth. The cavity, which is essentially a small hole in the enamel of the tooth, can fill with bacteria, leading to other health problems if not treated correctly and promptly.
Don’t suffer in silence when you could receive prompt and professional treatment from our compassionate dentist. Using the latest in dental care technology, we quickly assess your toothache and provide a reliable diagnosis from which you can make an informed decision about your dental care options.
The best ways to prevent cavities from developing into serious problems include:
- Brushing and flossing regularly each day, especially after consuming sugary or acidic foods
- Having your teeth professionally cleaned once every six months
- Scheduling a deep cleaning if it’s been awhile since your last dental visit
- Applying sealants to susceptible teeth, or teeth that seem to have weakened enamel
If you experience sharp pain in your tooth or sensitivity to hot or cold substances or have a feeling that you have something stuck in your tooth, our experienced dentist in New Orleans can inspect your teeth for cavities. If you’re joining us for the first time, we offer complimentary new patient exam and full mouth series of X-rays (ADA codes 0150, 0210 - value of $195.00), during which we can identify and assess any cavities you might have and recommend a treatment option.
