Patients often come into our Lafayette Colorado dental practice and complain about ‘a toothache the size of Boulder’. I understand this kind of pain, and realize that when you describe it like that, it really hurts. I can help.
Tooth ache pain for anyone in Lafayette can be unbearable. At the very least, toothache pain can cause you to avoid eating certain foods, certain temperatures, and even talking. Severe toothache pain can be downright debilitating, forcing patients to go to extreme measures to alleviate the pain. Sometimes the infection can be so advanced that not even the anesthetics will function, that is why sedation dentistry is so handy.
Around Lafayette, the most common causes of a tooth ache include tooth infection, decay, injury, and loss of a tooth. Tooth pain can also occur after a tooth has been extracted, or after an oral surgery involving anything from a tooth or your jawbone.
I can help you better understand the source of your tooth ache pain, and in most cases can provide a nearly immediate remedy. In severe cases, we are equipped to council you on a variety of resolutions.
Of course, the best way to avoid tooth ache pain is to visit your Lafayette dentist often, and to care properly for your teeth including the regular regimen of brushing and flossing.
If you are experiencing tooth ache pain, and just can’t stand it any more, please give me a call; I am standing by to help.
