Experiencing a severe toothache or oral pain can make life miserable. While pain relievers can help dull the ache, they do not fix the problem. Tooth or jaw pain is an indicator that there is something wrong, and the problem will likely get worse without treatment. If you live in the Sandy Springs or Alpharetta area, The Dentist Centers can help determine the cause of your oral pain and find a dental treatment to give you relief.
Tooth pain usually indicates that something is irritating the nerves of your tooth. This can be decay that has reached the inner portion of your tooth, a crack in the tooth, an abscess or other types of tooth infections. Until the issue is resolved, you could continue to feel worsening tooth pain and may even be at risk of losing your tooth. Dr. Myers can complete a thorough exam and diagnose your tooth problem. Most tooth issues can be repaired in one office visit, giving you fast relief and protecting the health of your smile.
Treatment for Jaw Pain
There are several reasons you may experience jaw pain. Misalignment of your teeth, jaw joint problems and stress on the jaw can all cause pain. With a comprehensive exam, Dr. Myers can determine the cause of your jaw pain and offer a treatment solution. It may be something as simple as wearing a mouthguard when you sleep, or you may need orthodontics to realign your teeth. The first step is finding the cause of the stress on your jaw. Once Dr. Myers finds the problem, he can discuss options to help you make an informed decision on the best treatment to give you relief.
