Pain is your body’s signal that something is wrong, and you should never ignore it. Some of the common causes of tooth pain include:
Tooth decay can eat through the enamel that covers and protects your teeth, exposing the interior. Tooth decay can also penetrate to the pulpy interior of your tooth and damage the nerves and blood vessels inside your tooth, leading to pain.
An abscess is a pus-filled pocket caused by a bacterial infection. They typically cause painful inflammation, which can also compress nerves in your tooth and gums leading to more severe pain.
A broken tooth can allow bacteria to enter your tooth and trigger decay in the pulpy interior. Broken teeth can lead to infections and inflammation.
Damaged fillings allow bacteria to enter your tooth. Also, your tooth becomes vulnerable to damage when a filling is loose, broken, or missing.
The team of expert endodontists at 3D MicroEndo offers state-of-the-art exams, including 3D scans and X-rays, to evaluate your teeth inside and out. They talk to you about your symptoms, your medical and dental history, and your lifestyle, including your at-home dental hygiene practices.
The team at 3D MicroEndo provides a comprehensive range of treatments to address the underlying causes of tooth pain. Following your exam, you and your endodontist discuss your condition and your treatment options. Some of the potential endodontic treatments include:
The team uses state-of-the-art endodontic equipment, including 3D scans and X-rays, microscopes and lighting, and rotary instruments to treat the cause of your tooth pain.
They also offer advice to prevent additional tooth pain. For example, you should brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush for two minutes twice a day and floss at least once a day.
