How To Relieve (& Prevent!) Dental Pain [BLOG]
August 26, 2018
Managing a painful toothache is fine in the short-term until you can be seen by a dentist.
That’s great news for people of all ages, but especially for adults who want a beautiful, straight smile!
But it’s not something you can really get away with long-term.
Putting off a trip to the dentist office and hoping you can wish the pain away will not end well for your smile or your health.
That’s why you should visit our team at Johnson Dental Care for restorative dentistry. We can figure out why you’re in pain or are having a hard time eating comfortably. Health and function are critical to maintaining a great smile for a lifetime, and you’ll find ways to keep your teeth working properly in our Landisville, PA dental office.
The Source Of Your Dental Pain Won’t Heal Itself
Your body is designed to protect, and even heal, itself.
But that doesn’t mean, of course, that problems with your health can all be solved if you’re just willing to tough it out long enough!
That’s silly, which is why a toothache or painful chewing shouldn’t be left alone. It means there’s a problem that demands a solution, or else you could face really serious oral health consequences.
And you may be surprised to know that in most cases, the restorative treatment you might need is pretty simple.
Here are some common causes for dental pain and the treatments that will resolve the issue:
*You have an infected tooth that needs root canal treatment.
*You have tooth decay or a cavity that needs a dental filling.
*You’ve fractured a tooth and need a dental crown to preserve and protect it.
*A tooth has been knocked loose or out, in which case a dental bridge or implant can replace it.
You can find a variety of ways to attack the dental problem that’s attacking you at Johnson Dental Care! Our restorations will strengthen your trouble tooth and keep your healthy smile intact!
Prevent Pain By Preventing The Dental Problem Behind It
Wouldn’t it be great to not have to deal with dental pain in the first place?
Obviously, we’d all avoid pain of any kind at all times, but that’s not realistic.
What is within your power, though, is being proactive about your dental health so you can lessen the chances of facing the discomfort and loss of function that come with many of the problems we’ve mentioned in today’s blog.
A proactive approach means you’re brushing and flossing everyday, eating highly nutritious foods, monitoring your sugar intake, staying hydrated, and avoiding unhealthy habits like smoking and excessive drinking.
It also means you’re keeping up with your dental cleanings and exams about twice a year in our Landisville, PA practice! We’ll be able to detect problems early so, with the right intervention, you won’t have to deal with severe toothaches or any other chronic dental pain.
