What do I do if my toothache is unbearable?

Tooth pain is never a welcome occurrence and exists at a few levels. For example, tooth sensitivity might result in minor pain when encountering ice cream or other cold foods, which goes away quickly. But a more persistent toothache could signify an oral health problem you must address.

If your toothache becomes unbearable, our dental team recommends you call your Littleton emergency dentist. Our experienced experts can ask the right questions to help pinpoint the likely cause of your tooth pain. From there, we can schedule you for our emergency dental services, usually on the same day. Our goal is to stabilize your situation and relieve your immediate pain. Then, we can resolve the condition that brought on your toothache in the first place.

When Toothaches Are Dental Emergencies

Any condition that interferes with your normal flow of life and work may be considered an emergency. If you have a toothache, we recommend contacting Platte Canyon Dental before the pain becomes unbearable. Most dental conditions are progressive and will worsen when you ignore them.

Untreated dental pain may also impede your eating ability, further weakening your resistance, taxing your immune system, and making you more susceptible to related health threats. Your best course of action is to seek treatment in Littleton, relieve your pain, and safeguard your dental health.
