- January 9, 2017
We hope that your new year is off to a great start. But if you have a toothache, and it hurts real bad, you probably won’t feel much like smiling regardless of how wonderful everything else may be.
There is some good news for you though: Dr. Peltzer can work to quickly alleviate your dental pain and get you back on the good road. If you’ve been putting off treatment because you secretly think the pain will subside on its own, don’t kid yourself any longer. You need professional help to gently attack the infection inside your tooth. The sooner you come in, the better it will play out for you.
Here’s what is likely going on: the intense pain and discomfort you are experiencing is on account of the pulp inside your tooth. That is where your nerves reside. Pain often results when this space has become inflamed.
You may not want to hear this, but your best options for cleaning up this mess include a root canal. A pain-free root canal procedure from Dr. Peltzer is not as bad as you might think. In fact, it isn’t bad at all!
Read on to hear more about it, and then be sure to follow up with us to schedule your consultation ASAP!
An End To The Pain
If your toothache is keeping you from eating, drinking, and enjoying life, that won’t be a sustainable model for long. That is precisely why a root canal treatment makes a lot of sense for folks in your predicament.
Here is the deal: the root canal is an opening that runs through the root of your tooth. This opening is how blood vessels and nerves reach the pulp chamber at the center of each tooth. Cavities and decay can eat away at the outside of your tooth for a long time. You may not feel it and you may not notice it until that infection reaches the innermost parts of your tooth. It’s only when your pulp becomes inflamed that you will feel that painful toothache. Bad breath, a foul taste inside your mouth, fever, swollen gums, sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks are all things you will have to endure until you visit Gentle Dental Care.
Don’t Root Canal Treatments Hurt?
Contrary to popular belief, root canal treatments do not hurt! In the event that you need a root canal, the first thing we will do is use a local anesthetic to numb your tooth and the tissues around it. Plus, we offer three types of sedation dentistry to ensure that you won’t feel a thing. Dr. Peltzer is one of the state’s leading experts in dental sedation, so you can trust that you are in good hands with us. We would never begin the procedure until you are completely numb and comfortably sedated. When you are here for your evaluation, we’ll go over all of the other specifics.
