The best treatment for a toothache in Sacramento
It is common for a patient to have a toothache at some point in their life. Toothaches can be incredibly painful and require patients to seek the assistance of a doctor. Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams are dentists who assist patients in the community with quality care and attention, as well as emergency dental services.
The treatment for a toothache will depend on the cause of the toothache. In some cases, it is caused by a cavity that has made the tooth vulnerable to pain and discomfort, especially with foods and drinks of extreme temperatures and sweets that can cause a toothache to flare up. When the toothache is caused by a cavity, most patients will benefit from a filling. A filling is used to address a cavity in a way that is both attractive and effective. Fillings used in our practice include composite resin fillings that match the natural tooth enamel and are discreet.
Another reason patients may have a toothache is due to an abscess or infection that is affecting the dental pulp. The dental pulp is within the tooth and houses the blood supply, the nerves, and tissues that help in keeping the tooth alive. When they are infected or inflamed, they can cause pain that can be severe enough to keep patients from sleeping or feeling comfortable. Some cannot be controlled with regular over-the-counter pain medication. Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams may suggest the benefit of root canal therapy. Root canal therapy can be used to remove the dental pulp from inside the tooth to eliminate the source of pain without having to extract the tooth.
