Toothache pain can sometimes be surprising and certainly distressing. This is a salient sign that something has distressed the internal structures, root, or socket structure of the tooth. In a situation like this, you need to contact Dr. Param Gill’s clinic to seek professional treatment.
A toothache can be the result of a distressed filling, untreated cavity, or a dental trauma. Notable symptoms include increased sensitivity, increasing discomfort, pain, pressure, or swelling in the underlying gums.
After a thorough examination and X-rays, Dr. Param Gill will apprise you of the severity of the problem and present you with the applicable treatment options.
In many of these cases, he will need to perform a root canal. Once any distressed dental structures have been extracted he can form an abutment to anchor an eventual dental crown.
If the tooth has been severely compromised or a large abscess has infected your gums, the only viable treatment might be for Dr. Param Gill to extract the remnants of the tooth. Aftercare measures will likely also include a prescription for an antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, or pain medications.
Once the pain has dissipated and your gums have fully healed, he can help you understand your options for restoring the tooth. This might include installing a dental bridge or starting the process of replacing the tooth with a dental implant.
