A toothache can be any pain you feel in your tooth or surrounding your tooth. As part of your general dentistry visits, you should inform dentist Dr. Rod Strober of your pain. After determining the cause of your toothache, Dr. Strober will inform you of your treatment options. Toothache can be caused by:
- Tooth decay
- Tooth abscess
- TMJ disorders
- Fractured, broken tooth
- Damaged tooth restoration
Because there are so many possible causes of a toothache, there are many possible treatments. For example, tooth decay may only require a general dental cleaning, while tooth pain brought about by teeth clenching and grinding may necessitate TMJ diagnosis and treatment.
The only way to determine the cause of your toothache is to visit our cosmetic and general dentistry practice. After an examination of your teeth, Dr. Strober will plan the best way to alleviate your tooth pain.
If you are experiencing a toothache in San Diego, the general dentistry services at Strober Dental can treat the causes of toothache. Please contact experienced general dentist Dr. Rod Strober to schedule a consultation.
