Worcester dental clinic
When you are unfortunate enough to have a toothache, you can only have one wish: make it go away. And that is what we at Pearla Dental are committed to doing. There are a few common causes for toothaches, and they all require specific approaches. Fortunately, at our Worcester dental clinic
, you can always depend on the best possible outcome.
Probably the simplest reason for a toothache is that you have a cavity that needs filling, or an existing filling has fallen out. In either instance, your tooth's protective layer has become exposed. A new or replacement filling solves the problem. It is the result of plaque as well as hardened tartar that causes a cavity to form. And because fillings do not last forever, when one does come loose, the correct way to handle it is to put in a new one. You can also have a toothache because of a chipped or cracked tooth. Your nerve becomes exposed, and that is the reason for your discomfort. If no damage or infection has occurred to the pulp deep inside your tooth, our Worcester dental clinic will measure you for a crown to cover the chip or crack. If an infection has set in, with our without a damaged tooth, you will need root canal treatment. That may seem like bad news, but today's version of root canal is virtually painless, thanks to the advancements made in both technique and equipment. And root canal saves your tooth from extraction, empty space where you used to have a tooth, and the fuss and expense of replacement.
Don't ignore a toothache. It is highly unlikely to go away without the necessary dental care. The sooner you call our Worcester dental clinic
, the more quickly you can be rid of the pain and have your tooth restored to maximum wellness.
