When you have a throbbing toothache that keeps you awake at night or a sudden sharp pain in a tooth, it is a sign of dental trouble. The nerves that send pain signals to the brain from the teeth are deep inside teeth – tooth pain is usually a sign of injury or disease in the tooth. If you have tooth pain, it should not be ignored. Our compassionate dental team at Optum Dental Arts can diagnose the cause of tooth pain and offer treatment recommendations at our clinic in Tampa, FL.
Tooth pain can be caused by a variety of dental issues. Tooth decay is a common cause of toothaches and sensitivity, as the enamel and dentin are compromised. Severe tooth pain can be caused by tooth infections or injuries that have impacted the interior of the tooth. Treatment for tooth pain may be a simple filling for tooth decay, or may require more complex procedures such as endodontics surgery (root canals) or tooth repair with a dental crown. Our experienced dental team can perform the needed treatment to give you tooth pain relief at our facility near Carrollwood.
Treatment for Jaw Pain
Jaw pain is often related to dental issues. Bruxism can cause damage to the jaw and teeth that can cause jaw pain, but there are many issues that can cause jaw pain or temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ/TMD). If you have jaw pain or dysfunction of the jaw joint, Dr. Davies can perform a thorough dental exam and TMJ screening to determine the cause of your jaw discomfort. Our dental team can recommend a treatment for jaw pain to give you relief.
Oral pain is not normal. If you have tooth, jaw, gum or any type of oral pain, please call our office to schedule an appointment. For severe pain or discomfort, we have emergency dental appointments available and may be able to see you the same day. Contact our dental practice in Tampa to schedule your checkup to determine the cause of your tooth or jaw pain. We can often perform treatment the same day to relieve your pain.
