How to Treat Tooth Pain

Posted .

Tooth pain can be a sign of infection and decay. A tooth infection begins in the interior of the tooth. The pulp found inside the interior chamber may become infected through a cavity, injury, or cracked tooth. Dr. Siddhi Patel and her professional dental team at Park Dental are dedicated to providing advanced dental care to patients in the Hilliard, OH area. They offer root canal therapy to remove damaged pulp from an infected tooth and eliminate pressure caused by inflammation.

Signs of Tooth Infection

There are several common symptoms that patients feel when they have a tooth infection:

  • Sudden, severe tooth pain
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Gum abscess or swelling
  • Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures

Have you noticed any of these symptoms? Call our office at (614) 254-5116. Our professional dental staff is dedicated to giving patients relaxing care in a warm and friendly environment. They will work with you through every step of the treatment process to ensure your comfort.

The Root Canal Procedure

For this procedure, Dr. Patel will create a small hole in the back of the tooth to extract the infected pulp. After the root chamber is cleaned, a biocompatible material is used to fill the tooth and seal out infection. Root canals stabilize a tooth and are not as painful as most patients believe; anesthetic is used on the treated area to make sure that treatment is not painful.

Our office also offers sedation options for patients who feel dental fear or anxiety. Using sedatives allows patients to feel relaxed and calm during treatment.
